Plums and plums are among the types of fruit that do not ripen. You should therefore only buy fruits that are not too hard.
The so-called scenting, the natural wax layer, must not be damaged if possible. They are only washed off shortly before consumption, explains the Federal Association of Fruit and Vegetable Producer Organizations.
