Overview

Chile is the main plum supplier in the South Hemisphere. All the varieties have juicy flesh and small stones. Three of the key varieties include: Angeleno, with its purple skin, Larry Ann, with its intense red skin, and the dark Black Amber. Chile continues to introduce new varieties known for their unique color and flavor, like Candy Stripe, Dapple Dandy and the Lemon Plum.

Chilean plums are in season from mid-November until April.

Nutrition Facts >

How to Select, Store and Handle Plums

Know what variety you’re buying! Depending on variety, plums can range from light yellow-green to almost black-purple.

Avoid plums that are too soft or too hard, as they are likely immature and will not develop a good taste.

Place unripe plums in a bowl at room temperature. They ripen quickly, so keep an eye on them!

Plums can be frozen, but remove the pit before freezing.
