I am living in Japan and my host mother is offering to give me her homemade umeboshi, or pickled plums. The plums do have a seed in the middle but because they have been pickled the seed can't grow.
Would USA Customs allow them through?
Yes, there should be no problems taking pickled plums into the USA.

You can take any of these items into the USA
