1. a pickled ume [plum]; plum pickles ((通例複数形))
    Literally meaning“dried ume,”umeboshi are preserved fruits of Prunus mume, also known as the Japanese apricot or plum. Harvested unripened, green ume are salted, sundried, and then pickled with the red shiso herb, which gives umeboshi their distinctive red color (and pungent flavor). Salty and sour, they are said to stimulate the appetite and are commonly used as an ingredient in the center of onigiri rice balls and as a condiment for bento, boxed lunches.
