Your delicious plums are hand-picked by our grower and picked NEAR peak maturity. Our plums need a little strength to make the ride all the way to you. Our plums will finish the ripening process at room temperature and should begin to soften in 24-48 hours.
Plum Care Tips: A little known fact about the plum is that it is one of the few fruits that does not ripen on the tree. We recommend that you DO NOT refrigerate your plums for 2-4 days after receiving your fruit! It is recommended that you wipe them off with a towel after purchasing because they will have some condensation. The plum is harvested when it is mature, but not yet ripe, and, if left at room temperature, it slowly reaches a sweet and succulent maturity as it ripens from the inside out. Leave firm, unripe plums at room temperature so that they can ripen.
DO NOT wrap your fruit in plastic film or plastic bags because this will lead to your fruit becoming rotten, due to condensation from fruit being trapped inside.
