PLUM - Cibora - Prunus domestica 12/12
Plum fruit is sweet and juicy and it can be eaten fresh or used in jam-making or other recipes.
Plum juice can be fermented into plum wine; when distilled, this produces a brandy known in Eastern Europe as Slivovitz,
Rakia, Tzuica or Palinka. Dried plums are known as prunes. Prunes are also sweet and juicy and contain several antioxidants.
"Plum" is also a nickname for British humorist P. G. Wodehouse,
cricketer Sir Pelham Warner and British-born fashion writer and novelist Victoria "Plum" Sykes.
In addition there is a place called Plum, Texas.
A plum or gage is a stone fruit tree in the genus Prunus, subgenus Prunus.
The subgenus is distinguished from other subgenera (peaches, cherries, bird cherries, etc) in the shoots having a terminal
bud and the side buds solitary (not clustered),
the flowers being grouped 1-5 together on short stems, and the fruit having a groove running down one side, and a smooth stone.
