Plum (Japanese)
Commonly called the Chinese plum or Japanese plum (Prunus salicina), is a small deciduous tree native to China. It is now also grown in fruit orchards in Korea, Japan, the United States, and Australia.

Cultivars of the species were greatly improved in Japan and then introduced into the United States in the latter half of the 19th century, where subsequent breeding produced many more cultivars, generally with larger fruit. Many of these American cultivars have been exported to other countries, including back into Japan, their ancestral place of origin.
