Lemon Plum, Anyone?

on June 29, 2011

We interrupt our usual Daisy posts to bring you this little touch of summertime fruit….. 😉

DH is off this week, and we’re trying to get a LOT done around the house in preparation for some big renovations this summer. I won’t have time to post as much as usual, but I did want to pass along a picture of one of the most unusual plums I’ve ever had:

This is a lemon plum. I’ve never seen one before or since we got this one at a local farm market. They always have some unique fruits in season at this wonderful place, and DD and I like to try almost every new thing we find there.

The lemon plum was fabulous! It started out summer-yellow and reddened to a luscious color as it ripened over the next couple of days. It actually did have a slight lemony taste mixed with the plum flavor – we loved it! And the fact that it was shaped like a heart just made it all the more appealing. 🙂

    I wish I’d taken a picture of the inside – it was so juicy and a gorgeous shade of red. We were so taken with the flavor that we completely forgot to take a picture for the blog! 😉

    What an interesting looking fruit. I have to see if they have any in my area.

    I have never heard of lemon plums nor have I ever seen any fruit so perfectly heart shaped. Most interesting. Hugs

      We’d never heard of them before either. They were there for a little over a week, then no more. I guess they either have a very short growing time or they’re hard for markets to get.

    Looks like a happy little food! 🙂 Hope you’re having a good week!

  6. Mmm.. That lemon plum looks delicious! I’m a huge fan of lemon anything, so I’m sure I’d love the taste of that plum.

      Ah, Pauline, I knew we had a lot in common – I love lemon anything too! In fact, my daughter just made me lemon pancakes with homemade blueberry sauce – they were amazing! 😀

  7. My favourite aspect of summer is indulging in all the fresh fruits and veggies! Thanks for sharing a picture (and description) of a lemon plum. Now I know what to look out for the next time I’m at the market 😀
