Syrian and Roborovski hamsters can eat them in small amounts on an occasional basis, but other pet hamsters cant.

As you can see, plums contain a hint of salt and fat, a little acidic content, but a lot of sugar content.

This means that Syrians and Roborovski hamsters can eat plums in small amounts on an occasional basis.

However, Winter white dwarf hamsters, Russian Campbell dwarfs and Chinese hamsters cannot eat them as they are all prone to diabetes and eating plums will make them sick.If you want to find out more foods for your hamster, you can read Hamster diet chart
