Bruises

IMG_4660
I wasn't going to post the bruises, even though the back one was impressive. (It's the size, shape, and colour of a prune plum.) However, the front one has now developed into something impressive as well. (The back one has already started to fade a bit. It started off an even, deep purple.)

I'm amused how plums and bruises ripen in opposite directions. Plums start green, and end purple, bruises start purple, and fade to green.

Interesting: I didn't notice the linear bruises until I posted this photo.

They are rather tender.
