Morrisons is introducing a new range of plums called “Watermelons” as it looks to meet consumer demand for exotic new fruits.
The plum takes its name from its unique green skin and beetroot- coloured flesh. It can be eaten when it is both crisp and sweet, and has some subtle acidity. When ripe the “truly aromatic dark flesh simply melts in the mouth,” Morrisons said.
Watermelon plums are available for £5.49 (€6.59) per kg.
Following the mild winter, Morrisons is also introducing UK strawberries into its stores earlier than ever before.
The first pick are on sale now with a 227g punnet available for £3 (€3.60).
