Mariposa Plums are larger than most other plum varieties. They are a delightful treat with their near freestone pit and soft flesh. The slightly maroon speckles over light green skin clearly identify the Mariposa Plum from other varieties.
Plums are a rich source of vitamin C, which helps develops resistance against infectious agents, inflammation and free radicals in the body. Some studies have revealed that plums help prevent cancer, especially cancers of the breast, gastrointestinal and respiratory tract. They are not only good for health, but also for hair & skin.
The sweet-sour fruit is rich in vitamin C, K, copper, dietary fibre and potassium, while being quite low on calories, with 100 grams of plums containing 46 calories and absolutely no saturated fats.
