plum (family Rosacae) is a round, red, dark-blue or purple fruit of the
Prunus genus. Plums eaten are effective in repairing, 'rebuilding'
and healing eczema affected skin. Also eaten they can, somewhat, help to
prevent unaffected skin from deteriorating into eczema and slightly slow
the eczema deterioration of affected skin. Plums grow in warm and temperate
common species include Prunus domestica, Prunus insititia and Prunus
There are over 2000 varieties of plums.
A plumcot is a hybrid between a Japanese plum (Prunus salicina)
and an apricot (Prunus armeniaca).
A thin white powdery dust occurs naturally upon the skin of plums.
Plums and plumcots have a hard stone (pit) in their centre.
