Soggy Japanese Plums?

The drawback on most of these plums I find they get soggy, either on the tree or a day or two after picking.
I don't like soggy plums, ..used to like it many years ago when this was my only plum.

Are you experiencing the same?
What do you do with soggy plums?

So,..I like to focus more in European, best for me is Green Gage, also prune plums which stay firm a long time and processing/drying can be done with ease, most of them are freestone.

Yes, I think Euro plums are better in just about every regard, especially when you have a lot and need to do something with them.

Yes Mrs G47, mom used to do it, gave me another boost.
Think I'll have to peal these bitter skin Supreme plums.
