Country of origin: Italy Weight: 500g
Facts: The fruit is medium sized, the skin dark red and the firm flesh is amber yellow and sweet.
Storage: Keep unripe plums at room temperature to ripen. Ripe plums can be refrigerated.
Preparation and cooking: Wash before use. The skin has a sharper taste than the flesh and it is often better to leave it on, but if you want to remove it for a mellower, sweeter flavour, blanch in boiling water for a minute then plunge into ice cold water. The skin should then be easy to remove. Plums can be roasted, stewed or poached and are delicious in crumbles.
