Selecting & Storing Plums
Look for plums with a deep, rich color that are firm, yet yield to gentle pressure. A powdery "bloom" indicates that the plum has not been handled too much. Plums are very perishable. Keep ripe plums in the refrigerator for a few days. Underripe plums will ripen quickly at room temperature. Be sure to check them frequently to prevent them from becoming too ripe.
