Plum Gelato: It’s peak season for this summer fruit!

It’s plum season! That means taking advantage of peak seasonality to make gelato with the best ingredients nature provides. At GIO we always make sure an ingredient is at its best, handpicking our fruit fresh from the market.

Plums first grew in China before making their way across the world. Now, there are over 2,000 kinds. These stone fruits are related to peaches, nectarines, and apricots although they come in many more different shapes and sizes than their cousins.

This summer fruit has so much to offer and can be used in many diverse ways. Not to mention the health benefits this little guy brings to the table.

Is Plum Gelato Good for You?

Plums have a great nutritional profile. High in antioxidants and Vitamin C, they contain a ton of essential vitamins and minerals. They can also help heart disease, anxiety and constipation relief (as we know from prunes).

Plums contain:

  • Vitamin C
  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Phosphorus
  • Potassium
  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin K
  • Folate
