Dried Black Plums 乌梅 (Wu Mei) are near mature fruits that can be found in Chinese provinces such as Zhejiang, Fujian and Yunnan.
They are collected in Summer, have a burnt smell, an extremely sour taste and are astringent.
Plums belong to the same family as peaches, nectarines, and apricots. Dried Black Plums (Wu Mei) are much more diverse than their stone-fruit cousins.
