I am not a big fan of buying fruit that is shipped from half away around the world. But when I saw this pointy lemon plum in a grocery store, I decided that I would give it a try. The lemon plum is fairly new variety that comes from Chile. It is a beautiful yellow lemon color that turns more red as it ripens and is at it's sweetest. The color change start with a red point and then eventually the entire thing turns red. They are available in limited quantities in January to March, peaking in February.
My Experience with this Plum (Rating Scale 1-10)
Plum Flavor: 6
Overall Feeling: I really wish I bought more of these. They were amazing. They were extremely sweet and extremely juicy with a good flavor. The only thing lemon about this plum is the color as these are pretty low in the acidity department. The pit was pretty small, so more fruit for your money. If you can find these I highly recommend that you don't pass them up.
