Fruits: The plum is every bit as healthy for you as the blueberry

Everyone seems to think of the blueberry as the ultimate fruit, rich in antioxidants

Everyone seems to think of the blueberry as the ultimate fruit, rich in antioxidants. But if you're looking for a cheaper option in these credit-crunch times, try the plum, say researchers.

They reckon the plum has almost all the health-giving qualities of the blueberry, and for far less money.

Researchers at AgriLife Research in Texas tested more than a hundred varieties of plums, peaches and nectarines for their levels of antioxidants and phytonutrients, and discovered that the plum contains as many antioxidants as the blueberry. Other stone fruits, such as the peach and nectarine, were equally as health-giving.
