Green plums are often the sweetest available, and King Midas Plums are no exception. Such a royal treat; these were named for the famed king in Greek mythology, who turned everything he touched to gold. These firm golden-green delights are an uncommon plum variety and are only available for a limited time. They grow in the California foothills, where they are continually drenched in summer sunshine.
The honey-sweet yet nuanced flavor is what really makes this a prized gem during the hot summer months! Sweet and refreshing, they're the epitome of the season's luscious abundance. Enjoy out-of-hand for a superb snack, or slice and use as a wonderful addition to leafy green salads with candied nuts and tangy goat cheese.
They may bruise easily when ripe; so be sure to handle with care. To ripen plums, hold at 65 – 70°F. They are ripe when they give to gentle pressure.
