A plum is a stone fruit tree in the genus Prunus. The fruit has a groove running down one side and a seed which adheres to the flesh on the plum. In the early spring, the plum tree will be covered in blossoms, of which half will eventually turn into delicious plums. Careful early training, annual pruning, and shaping are required to insure healthy and productive trees.
