Belle de Louvain plums are very large, oval-shaped, and dark red, becoming purple when fully ripe.
Belle de Louvain is primarily a culinary plum, with a sweet-sharp plum flavour when cooked. The flesh is also fairly dry, which is useful in recipes where the surrounding pastry or cake mix must not be diluted with excess liquid.
