General Information
NameEuropean plum
Scientific NamePrunus domestica
DescriptionPrunus domestica (sometimes referred to as Prunus × domestica) is a species of flowering plant in the family Rosaceae. A deciduous tree, it includes many varieties of the fruit trees known as plums in English, though not all plums belong to this species. The greengages and damsons also belong to subspecies of P. domestica. Its hybrid parentage is believed to be Prunus spinosa and Prunus cerasifera. This is the most commonly grown plum at least in Europe, and most prunes (dried plums) are made from fruits of this species.
