Plum is a very round, purple fruit
. Its popularity is highest in China
, by a large margin. Culturally, plum is referenced in the popular American quip “plum nuts”, which is a derogatory accusation.

, but becomes sweeter
as it reaches the core. Dried plum (prune
) is a fairly common form of plum.
