When is a plum ripe?
The EAT ME label signals that the plum is ready to be eaten. We have special ripening chambers where the plums can continue to ripen when they arrive in the Netherlands. Our experienced ripening masters know exactly when the fruit has reached it sweetest stage and is ready to eat.
Recipes with plums
Plums are mainly popular as a handy snack. And a ready to eat plum is a true delicacy. Yoghurt will be even more tasty with plums. Or bake a plum tart or combine plum and avocado in a summery salad.
All you have to do is rinse and halve the fruit - if you are using it in a recipe - and remove the stone. Or just bite into that scrumptious flesh.

Do you think healthy skin is important? Then put plums on your shopping list more often. They contain a lot of vitamin A, which cares for your skin from the inside. Vitamin A also helps to boost your immunity. And did you know they will also help you see better in the dark? It's true!
Where do plums come from?
EAT ME plums are brought for you to Europe from South Africa, from the Western Cape. This region of South Africa offers the ideal conditions for plum growing. The temperatures in summer are high, in winter the nights are cold. Our growers harvest the fruits slightly later than usual. This gives the fruits a little longer on the tree so their sugar content can increase. And you will certainly taste the difference!
