Melissa’s Amber Jewel Plums are large, delicious plum/apricot hybrids. These thin-skinned, burgundy colored fruits are a semi-freestone variety.

The taste and texture of this plum is outstanding, brixing at levels of 18 and 19. The "Brix" scale measures the sweetness level of fruit, with an average plum brixing in the low teens. This fruit is juicy, very sweet, and sumptuously delicious. The Amber Jewel Plum has a sweetly aromatic fragrance and a pleasant absence of acidity.

Try Melissa’s Amber Jewel Plums! A mouthwatering treat eaten out of hand for a superb snack, or as a wonderful addition to your favorite fruit salad.

They may bruise easily when ripe; handle with care. To ripen plums, hold at 65 - 70º. They are ripe when they give to gentle pressure.
