Stanley Prune Plum
Inventory, 5 lbs : 0
Stanley Prune plums are a small to medium varietal with a distinct, oval to oblong shape with slightly pointed, tapered ends. The fruit’s skin is smooth, taut, and thin, transitioning from a dark red to a purple, almost black hue with maturity. Stanley Prune plums are also covered in a powdery, white-blue bloom that acts as a natural barrier from bacteria, insects, and moisture loss. The fruit’s bloom is a sign of freshness, and over time, the bloom will fade, indicating the fruit’s waning ripeness. Underneath the surface, the flesh is golden-yellow to green-yellow with a semi-firm, dense, and slightly aqueous texture. The flesh also encases a central light brown pit that is easily removed from the fruit. Stanley Prune plums have a snappy, semi-firm texture when raw, and as the fruits are cooked, they develop a jammy, creamy consistency. The flesh is also known for its low water content and high sugar content, creating a mild, fruity taste with citrus nuances. When Stanley Prune plums are cooked, they develop a rich, sugary-sweet flavor and transition into a bright pink hue.
