melhxwel (Wild Plum)

The wild plum bush is quite large, reaching up to five metres in height, and is quite odorous. The wild plum has the privilege of being the first plant to leaf and bloom in spring. On top of being this cherished indicator, it also provides fruit (often referred to as Indian plum) in early June, which is eaten fresh or dried for later consumption. These berries are quite bitter and have a large stone.
