Has anyone ever pickled non-ume plums? Or any other kind of stone fruit? If so, how did they turn out?

I'm looking to pickle plums and achieve somewhat of an umeboshi-type (Japanese pickled plums) result. Has this worked for anyone? Would anyone advise using regular, store-bought plums for a similar result? Or had success pickling any stone fruit? Lots of questions, I know. Thank you!

Hi Celeste, I haven't pickled non-ume plums before, but this article seems to spell out everything you need to know: http://justhungry.com/homemade-umeboshi-japanese-pickled-plums. There are quite a few troubleshooting tips and substitution notes.
