Sweet Plums

A plum or gage is a stone fruit tree in the genus Prunus, subgenus Prunus. Plum fruit is sweet and juicy and it can be eaten fresh or used in jam-making or other recipes. Plum juice can be fermented into plum wine; when distilled, this produces a brandy known in Eastern Europe as Slivovitz, Rakia, Tzuica or Palinka. Dried plums are known as prunes. Prunes are also sweet and juicy and contain several antioxidants. wikipedia

Mary and I picked this plums from its tree at Cristy's place. It's tree is not really tall and it's enjoyable to pick some fruits. It's sweet when its color turns from red to purple. It's easily be picked when it's ripe. Hubby and I love plums. I like to eat it with salt and a little vinegar. mmm I'm drooling now :)
