Sour Plums


Look for plums that are free of blemishes, discoloration, and soft spots. You can ripen plums at home, so the important thing is to make sure you’re picking plums from a good batch – it’s okay if they’re still a little hard.


Rinse thoroughly under cool water removing any dirt by gently scrubbing with your finger.


Store fruits at room temperature, stem-end down. Ripe plums have dull skins and  will last in the refrigerator for three to five days.
