Image The wild plum is a fickle fruit, ripening any time between late spring and late summer. It comes in a bunch of colors, shapes, and sizes. Some are sweet, some tart. And it boasts one of the highest food values—20% carbohydrate content—of any other fruit.

From late May to midsummer, wild plums (Prunus americana and other species) are ready to be picked. Throughout the U.S. there are about 30 varieties of native wild plums. Additional natural hybrids add to the complexity of variation and dilution of "purity." In the Northern Hemisphere there are 2,000 variations of these main varieties. ---continued at link, above ---
