Cherry Plum
Cherry plums are a similar size to a ping pong ball. They are almost round with a slight groove near the fruit's stem end. The skin is paper thin and reddish-purple in colour and the flesh is primarily yellow and marbled with tones of peach and cherry. At first bite, the fruit is sweet and spicy and then it finishes with a perfect kiss of tart to balance the sub acid sweetness. The Cherry plum contains a small central pit that clings gently to the flesh.
