This rare jam is made from Kea Plums which grow on just 25 acres of land surrounding the Fal estuary at Tregothnan. Our Kea Plum Jam is dark, delicious and deep-flavoured. Kea plums are shaken from the trees into a boat and used to create the most divine and rich jam. The perfect accompaniment to our cream tea!

Origins of the Kea Plum
These rare plums thrive on the shores of the river Fal in Cornwall. Thought to be extinct, the historic fruit may be related to a plum traded from Portugal during the 17th century and flourished at Coombe in Tregothnan’s subtropical microclimate.
