Plums ripen to sweet perfection in mid- to late-summer. The numerous varieties come in a range of sizes, shapes and colours, from tiny golden mirabelles, to tender greengages and bloomy-skinned red and purple varieties. Enjoy them just as they are, or bake them into pies, cakes and tarts. Don't miss out on trying them in savory dishes too. Try the classic Georgian tkemali sour plum sauce or a spicy chutney, and see how well this sweet fruit pairs with spice.
