What’s in season: Plums

Plums are far more diverse than their stone fruit relatives coming in a wider range of shapes, sizes, skin colours and tastes which vary from extremely sweet to quite tart. As a result of the wide range of colors it is quite difficult to know exactly which fruit to select. Some cultivars will become dull and soft as they ripen and lose their acid flavor. Other varieties will remain firm as they ripen and will be very high in sugar straight from the tree.
