Starting to harvest both of these and I must admit that those of
you that like Santa Rosa are starting to win me over. I used to
hate this plum, because of the tartness. Maybe the hot and dry
weather are enhancing the flavor, but the one I had straight from the tree this morning was very good, firm, crunchy, juicy, and very little tartness. I even picked a whole bag( something I would never do) and placed them in the refrigerator. I chill all of my fruit. To me cold fruit just tastes better.
These are the first Black Ruby’s I’ve ever harvested and I was pleasantly
surprised. Firm, crunchy, very juicy, good flavor with a hint of tartness
at the skin. Reminded me very much of a Black version of Santa Rosa.
You guys that like SR, should try this plum.
