June plums are small to medium in size, averaging 9 to 10 centimeters in length, and grow in dangling clusters of up to twelve fruits. The oval to ellipsoidal fruits have tough, thick skin that may bear some russeting and is bitter and tannic. The fruits mature from green to yellow and can be seen at multiple maturity stages on a single tree, appearing solid green, solid yellow, to variegated hues of green and yellow. Underneath the surface, the flesh is firm, depending on the degree of ripeness, and ranges in color from pale yellow to white. In the center of the flesh, there is also a fibrous pit that contains a few flat seeds. As the fruit matures, the pit's coarse, woody nature extends into the flesh, creating a tough consistency. 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.
