PLUM – Prunus domestica

Its thought Plums may have been one of the first fruits domesticated by humans. They are generally a small to medium deciduous TREE with glossy green LEAVES and white FLOWERS in spring. They are one of the best stone fruits to grow in a home garden as prolific crops of very good quality fruit can be produced with very little work. The FRUIT is firm and juicy with a hard stone in the centre and can range from sweet to tart.  Skin is smooth, with a natural waxy surface and are generally various shades of red although there are green and yellow types as well. Some are self-fertile or partially self-fertile but most are planted with a pollinator to ensure good fruit production.
