CARE AND HANDLING
Optimumum storage temperate for plums is 32 - 34 degrees with
90 - 95% humidity. Plums and pluots will store for 2 - 3 weeks after harvest.
Plums / pluots with a high soluble-solide content will keep longer and show less shriveling.
Both are an ethylene producer and sensitive to freeze injury.
To ripen, bring fruit to room temperature between 65 - 70 degrees
or excelerate the process in a paper bag.
