Frozen Kea Plums
Available for collection only. Rare and delicious, Kea Plums are harvested from orchards based at Coombe and Kea, on just 20 acres of land lining the Fal estuary in Cornwall. This fine fruit grown exclusively at Tregothnan ;and is available by the kilo.
The plums on the trees that overhang the water are literally shaken into a boat and then sailed right up to Tregothnan for transfer and cool storage prior to direct delivery to you.
Jams, chutneys and dishes are created from the plums. They have until now not been made available beyond Cornwall except as preserves.
Tregothnan is working to protect these ancient orchards and to secure Protected Designation of Origin status for the Kea plum species.
