Kind of ugly mottled brown on the outside, gorgeous heart shape with gory looking blood red flesh and juice
Very faint grassy fragrance
Perfectly soft and juicy — like eating a real heart! (assuming here that hearts are soft and juicy – seems like they should be, does it not?)
Perfectly sweet flavor with only the slightest bit of tartness to balance it out
OVERALL Overall Rating:
When I first saw this plum I thought it was kind of goofy looking. Being the vain girl that I am, I only noticed the weird browness of it and completely missed the fantastic heartness of it. Then I cut it open and wholy wowzers–I fell in love. October has brought great things to the world, my birthday being one and Halloween being the other. Now I can add dressing up as a witch and carrying one of these around to scare young children. I’ve been dreaming about it all week. mwah ha ha.
