Dried Black Plum (Wu Mei) are near mature fruits that can be found in Chinese provinces such as Zhejiang, Fujian and Yunnan. Dried Black Plum (Wu Mei) 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. They can be large or small, with red, purple, green, yellow pink, or orange skin/flesh.
They first grew in China thousands of years ago. These black plums made their way to Japan, parts of Europe, and America. Today, more than 2,000 varieties grow all over the world.
Plums add subtle sweetness to salads and/or desserts, but their health benefits are the juiciest part of the package.
