Plum, Prunus domestica / Rosaceae
In the markets we find plums almost all the year round, thanks to the great amount of varieties coming from different producing countries.

It is a summer fruit and in Spain it is possible to buy them fresh from May to September.

Plums are practically available in the markets all the year round, depending on the varieties and the origin. If we took as example the United Kingdom, one of the most select markets, we can see countries and varieties supply the market. For each country it is indicated the weight of the transport packages.
