The Golden plum has a thin golden outer skin and is roughly the size of a golf ball. The inner flesh of the Golden plum has a juicy consistency, is golden in color like the outer skin, and offers a sweet flavor with floral undertones.
Plums are just coming into season and will stick around through early fall. When ripe, they're juicy and sweet. You can enjoy eating them fresh or adding them to salads.
To speed up the ripening process, place plums in a paper bag and store them at room temperature, away from direct sunlight. Storing ripe plums in a plastic bag in the crisper drawer will prolong their eating life they should keep for 3 to 5 days. Stone fruit takes well to freezing.
