Japanese Variety

With a larger than average size and a rounded stem end tapering to a soft point, it does indeed resemble a large heart. It has a mottled pistachio and purple skin, deepening to burgundy red with a powdery matte finish. When ripe, it feels heavy in the hand, full of sweet juice and firm but delicate flesh, flushed with deep ruby ​​red color throughout. The Elephant Heart plum is floral and sweet with just a hint of acid, and should be consumed within a few days of purchase as it has ashort shelf life when ripe.
