Crimson Red Diamond plums are a stone fruit such as cherries, apricots, and peaches. These plums have freckled red skin with bright red flesh. Crimson Red Diamond plums are particularly large in size and are about the size of a baseball. They have a sweet mild flavor and succulent tender flesh that is perfect for even picky eaters.
Uses: Plums are excellent raw as a topping for frozen desserts, tarts, or pies. Chopped plums can be cooked gently over a low heat with sugar to make a delicious cocktail syrup or compote.
Plums also make surprisingly good pickles. Try steeping sliced plums in 2:3 parts rice vinegar to sugar with salt, star anise, ginger, and cinnamon overnight.
