Plum is a decidious Tree growing to 12m by 10m at a medium rate. It is in flower in
April, and the seeds ripen from July to November. The flowers are
hermaphrodite (has both male and female organs) and are pollinated by Insects.
The plant is self-fertile. The fruit varies considerably from cultivar to
cultivar, but it is generally somewhat mealy, soft and juicy with a delicious
flavour ranging from very sweet to acid. The more acid fruits are usually
only used for cooking purposes. White flowers grow in clusters, and are
beautiful to look at.
