Where Is Ta Van Plum Grown?

Ta Van Plum is a special plum variety, picky about growing soil, widely grown in the highland communes of Bac Ha and Si Ma Cai. This plum only produces juicy, crunchy fruit when grown at altitudes above 1500 m above sea level. That’s why Ta Van Plum has a special flavor and has become a specialty in Lao Cai. Ta Van Plum is also known as Cherry Vietnam

Ta Van plum is most grown in Ta Van Chu commune, Bac Ha district, Lao Cai.

In June and July, the Ta Van plum garden is ripe and red in every corner of the sky. Plums are red in color, covered with white powder. When ripe, it has a purple-red color, bright red flesh, and a sweet, crunchy taste. Plums dipped in a little wet salt will make you feel attractive. Or you can slice and pickle with paprika and sugar.
