A prune is a dried plum: but while all prunes are plums, not all plums can become prunes! To become a prune, a plum needs to have a soft, thin and sweet skin, with the fruit full of natural sugar, to aid preservation.
These prunes have a sweet, rich flavour and a bright, shiny black appearance.
We sell dried prunes in a number of pack sizes and types, including organic varieties. Click here to see all our prunes.

The combination of fibre, natural sugars and antioxidants in prunes, as well as their great flavour, make them a superb healthy snack. Prunes also have a strong humectant (water-absorbing) effect, making them useful as a replacement for fat in baking.
