June plums are crisp, firm, and dense when young with a sweet, pineapple-like taste.
As the fruit ripens, it develops a softer, aqueous consistency with a mildly acidic, musky, sweet, and sour flavor reminiscent of a combination of soursop, pineapple, mango, and star fruit.
The fruit is high in fiber and water content to facilitate proper digestion. It helps with constipation and in regulating blood sugar.
Additionally, fruits contain antioxidants that assist the body in mitigating the effects of free radicals that cause damage at the cellular level and result in fine lines and wrinkles of premature aging.
