October Sun plums are a Japanese variety that taste strikingly like lemonade. They are crunchy with citrusy aroma and a sweet-tangy flavor. These plums are best enjoyed cold as a digestif after a hearty meal or as a refreshing snack.
Uses: October Sun plums make for excellent jam and preserves due to their refreshing tartness. Cut plums in half and remove the pit before cutting them small dice. Cook over low heat with half the weight of plum in sugar for about 25 minutes or until soft and thickened.
The skin is particularly acidic and can be peeled for a sweeter eating experience.
