What am I?

We picked these up at Amish while we were in Manhattan this weekend and seriously have no idea what they are. Well, they are tiny green plums, but beyond that, I am stumped. I thought maybe they were greengage plums, but they are smaller than that, I think. Matt thought they were Japanese plums (ume?) at first but now we are not sure. They have a very clear (not smudgy like some plums) bright green skin and matching green flesh. The guy at the store said they were grown in South America, but I don't think that makes much difference. Here's another picture with my very normal sized thumb in it for perspective. Tiny, tiny plums.
