Over 400 years ago, Kea plums were discovered growing beside a remote tidal creek on the Tregothnan estate. Unique to Cornwall, these plums exist on just 25 acres of land along the banks of the river Fal in the village of Kea. Tregothnan is working to protect these ancient orchards and to secure Protected Designation of Origin status for the Kea plum species.
This 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 a cream tea!

CORNWALL'S GARDEN OF DELIGHTS
Cornwall’s culinary history is unique to the UK. The peninsula is surrounded by fertile fishing grounds on three sides and has a strong tradition for seafood dishes. Cornwall’s quirkier products, however, are also a result of its geography and climate. From delightful English grown teas to rich kea plum jam… Cornwall never fails to surprise and delight.
