What is Plum?
The plum is a fruit with a hard pit in its center and comes in different varieties. Some varieties include mirabelle, damson and the ruby cherry plum. Plums vary in size, but are usually a bit larger than a clementine orange, while some are the size of a large grape. Each plum has a different skin tone, from a dark red that is nearly black, to a brighter red, or muted purple. The plum has an edible thin skin and flesh that is yellow/gold or red. The flavor is sweet, gently musky and tart.
