A fruit which I rarely used to get is the plum. I dunno why but we as a family rarely ever get plums. My family usually likes to eat some sort of fruit after lunch or dinner. Living in Kerala, bananas are very common and eat at all times of the day but apples, grapes, oranges, mangoes and a few others are also big choices. But not so much the plum.
A few days ago I bought a huge set of plums. 2 kgs I think from one of the chain stores of fresh fruits & veggies. I found out that I like plums a lot. I like to keep them in the fridge and have one after lunch and one after dinner. They are not too sweet, a tad bit too juicy but I find them refreshing and tasty.
Plums may have been one of the first fruits domesticated by humans. I think the ones I bought are called the Damsum variation of the plum with purple skin. I find the shape of the plum very provocative to say the least but it’s fun to eat.
