Cherry plums are a stone fruit such as cherries, peaches, and apricots. These clingstone plums have an ombré red-gold skin with similarly colored flesh. Cherry plums are small, sweet, and fragrant with a slightly acidic skin and center. They taste of sweet plum mixed with raspberry, pomegranate, and a hint of red currant. These plums are tender even when hard but they are truly special when fully soft: the interior becomes incredibly succulent, juicy, and candy sweet.
