I surely do not have to give any introduction about Plums. They grow all over the world from Japan and Asia up to the USA passing through Europe. But just a few points about the fruit must be mentioned. Firstly the plums are very seasonal and can be enjoyed only during summer and early fall. The season for the plums in the USA is generally from May up to September while those here in France (called the prunes, they are the European plums) are available in their best state from June to October. To savor their sweet taste even after the season, it is generally dried and rather known as prune (the French term for the fruit) in English. The other way is of course to convert them into a sweet jam to bring flavor to ones breakfasts.
