A plum is a fruit of some species in Prunus subg. The trees blossom at different times in different places across the globe. The most common varieties of plum are the Damson, Greengage, Yellowgage, Victoria plum, Satsuma plum, and Mirabelle plum. The name plum derived from Old English plume or “plum, plum tree”, which extended from Germanic language or Middle Dutch, and Latin prūnum, from Ancient Greek προῦμνον proumnon. In the late 18th century, the word, plum, was used to indicate “something desirable”, probably in reference to tasty fruit pieces in desserts.
