The Prunus is a member of the vast Rosacea family. It consists in many cultivated species originating mainly from Europe, Asia Minor, and the Middle-East.
A fleshy fruit with a stone, the plum has a soft, juicy, and sweet pulp that is used for making jams and Eau-de-vie. Its shape is generally oval and its color can vary from light yellow to a deep violet.
One can often find on a plum a small translucent whitish veil that reflects light. This is the “pruine” a waxy flake secreted by the fruit to protect itself against external aggressions, namely heat. Its presence is thus a sign of quality. Some species, however, lack this protective film.

The plum provides a refreshing and pleasing sensation.
