Of late peaches have been the fruit to talk about. We have exceptional peaches which are grown on the Western Slope of the Rocky Mountains and at this time of year they are a hot topic, rightly so. However a more subtle fruit that shines right now are plums. I had no idea there were so many varieties until I became a locavore a few years ago. Through our local Farmer’s Market I’ve enjoyed learning about many new varieties, each available only for a few weeks time.
