Korean Green Plums 매실 (Maesil / Ume) - 3kg/5kg/10kg
Pre-order today to avoid disappointment.
The Korean green plums – maesil, is only available for a short period of time during May and June every year. Maesil is sour and contains strong citric acid; thus it should never be eaten fresh. They are often used for making Maesil-Cheong (plum syrup), syrup made by sugaring plums and left to ferment.
Maesil also contains natural sugar, calcium, iron, minerals, dietary fibre, as well as organic acids, and citric acids which are beneficial to one’s health. The organic acids promote gastrointestinal activity, increase appetite, and are effective in relieving fatigue.
In Korea, there are many variants used to make the plum syrup. Typically, they are Cheon-mae, Ok-young, Aeng-suk, Chung-chook and Nam-go. All plums are green in colour, but once there is sunshine, the maesil will turn slightly pinkish and ripen slowly to a yellow ish colour at the end of the season. The maesil you will get will typically be greenish in colour. For Ok-young or Aeng-suk and Nam-go, however, they will be pinkish to reddish sometimes.
