Choose a piece of fruit that is firm without any shriveling, bruising or translucent appearance. The exterior of the Holiday is speckled and ranges in color from greenish red, to a yellowish red to full red. Regardless of the exterior, all plums will have that delicious and juicy Holiday flavor.
The HMC Farms Holiday red plums are one of the few plums we recommend avoiding the refrigerator. The sugar content is much higher than your average plum and the acidity is much lower, this causes the texture to change when the fruit is refrigerated. On the bright side, this plum will hold up on your counter for quite some time, so take your time and enjoy the last of your summer holidays.
Every piece of fruit at HMC Farms is grown using sustainable practices. We do our best every day to grow produce that is better for you, better for the Earth, and better for the trees that makes these delicious fruits a possibility.
Our favorite way to enjoy HMC Farms Holiday plums is to simply take a bite out of a ripe, juicy plum, but the bruschetta recipe below is a close second. This recipe also doubles as a delicious salsa if you would prefer to enjoy it with chips instead.
