The red plum, often called the Santa Rosa plum, has a deep strawberry and orange colored flesh which is firm yet tender, extremely juicy when ripe and so low in acidity that its flavors are reminiscent of a fruit punch. Red plums are an excellent source of vitamins A, C and K.
Red plums, just like other plums can be made in many sweet and savoury dishes. You can bake cakes, make desserts, or even use red plums to flavor dark meats as this adds a great juicy and sweet flavor to the recipe. Red plums are fantastic at adding a great color to your meal.
