Alphabe Thursday - "P" is for Prunes - January 27, 2011

Prunes are quite a yummy fruit,
They're plums that have been dried,
Though oddly wrinkly looking,
They're very good inside!

California grows the most, by far,
And shares throughout our earth,
It seem a lot of people know,
What gives this fruit great worth!

Prunes bear the title superfruit,
They're rich in many things,
From fiber to antioxidants,
They'll see your body sings!

They're not just for us grannies,
Who need some help to move,
To get us feeling regular,
And back into the groove!

Prunes are sweet and very tasty,
They're good for young and old,
These tiny shriveled purple fruits,
Are worth their weight in gold!

  1. Perfect prune poetry.


  2. I like your pruny poem. P could be for prune and poem!

  3. I just love prunes! I also love plums, but prunes are a lot more portable! Great post, and excellent pics!

  4. Both the fresh and dried one are good.

    They are definitely my favorite.

  5. Is that what's known as Purple Prose?

    lol...perfect prune post...

  6. I love this post! Very clever!

    PS I also love prunes... but not too many at a time ;)

  7. I can't say this is a fruit that appeals to me all that much! I like my fruit a little more youthful. In plum form, say.

  13. I have to admit I do equate prunes with my granny. Maybe I need to take a second look at them. A fun poem!

  14. perfect! i love prunes ... eat them every day!!!

  15. Prunes Perfect Poet! :)

    But, ya, they are just not for me!

    I remember trying them when I was pregnant with my first child. I'm not sure if it was the nausea from the baby or the prunes BUT I still can't eat them. :)


  16. I love prunes too! I like to savor them by taking little tiny bites! haha

    I love plums too...

    Blessings & Aloha!
    Thank you so much for stopping by! It is hard for me to keep track of the blog visits, but I am happy that you found me and fun to learn more about you. Oh yes, Hawaii and California are tied together with families from both states...My hubby's grandfather was one of 22 kids (none were multiple births) and a lot of them moved to California when they were grown. Thank you for your kind comments and do come back any time. I can't wait til we become grandparents too :o)
    Do you do facebook? I am keeping my fb and blog separate, since my daughter introduced me into blogging and she asked that I do, to help keep some privacy of her blog from random old boyfriends that still can try to get on her fb through mutual friends.

  17. Cute, cute story of prunes!

  18. smart and healthy take on p,
    love prunes..

    awards 4 u, Happy Friday!

    Happy Weekend.

  19. Prunes are definitely yummy, as long as they're organic. For the longest time, I thought prunes were dried plums. So much for being a California gal living among orchards of apricots. Well, maybe that's why I didn't know. :-)

  20. I haven't had a prune in years but this made me want to go get some!

  21. Hi Carmen, I love that last stanza.

    I rarely buy plums and never buy prunes. I am going to give them a try again, I think, after reading this glowing accolade.

    Thanks for a perfect link to Alphabe-Thursday's letter 'P'.

    You are a clever one!
