Lemon Plums from Chile are truly a treat to eat. Plums are wildly sweet and juicy, named for their lemony color and tear-drop shape, not their flavor. Sometimes, this fruit is called a Chameleon or Volcano plum which describes the dramatic change of color the fruit undergoes as it ripens. Plums start pale yellow then gradually mature to a rich golden-red color, a clear sign that the fruit is ripe and ready to eat.

Yellow, immature plums have firm flesh and texture suitable for baking. When the fruit is entirely red, the flesh is soft, juicy, and perfect for eating out of hand as a snack.

Choose plums that are firm and blemish-free. Ripen on the counter at room temperature until the color is entirely red. (Note; ripening time for this variety is unusually long—sometimes as much as ten days). Refrigerate ripe plums for up to 3 days.

This item is perishable and must ship at least 2nd day.
