Stromberg Plum

Welcome to the Atlas Obscura Community discussion of Stromberg Plum. Ask questions or share tips, experiences, pictures, or general comments with the community. For the story behind this food, check out the Atlas Obscura entry:

Protected Designation of Origin status in 2013, meaning that the plum cannot be grown anywhere outside of this verdant and historic town in the Westphalian Lowlands.

I don’t think that’s quite what it means. Instead, one cannot sell products made with that variety of plum and call them Stromberg, if the plums were grown elsewhere. But you can still grow the plums anywhere.

Thank you so much for noting the error! I just amended that sentence.
