Description: Plums are a prominent source of different phytonutrients including phenolic compounds and flavonoids. European plums that are commonly grown in Ontario, Canada are blue-violet in colour, and recently through conventional breeding, a new variety named yellow skinned European plums (YEPs) has been developed. YEPs has its moisture content ranging between 80-90% (wet basis), which makes it prone to microbial spoilage and reduced shelf-life. Hence, drying YEPs to prunes will not only improve its shelf-life but also increase its customer acceptability. In this study, five genotypes of novel Yellow European Plums (YEPs) (Prunus domestica) were dried using conventional dehydration process and its associated effects on YEPs nutritional and physical properties were examined. Dehydration was performed at 50
