ume fruits ripening?

coing(7)June 7, 2008

I have a prunus mume covered with hard green smallish fruits.

I know they should be harvested green, but how do I know when they are ready to pick? I plan to make plum wine and maybe some umeboshi.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I'd say as long as their still firm.
