Prunus cerasifera Ehrh., known as cherry plum, is a small shrubby tree with intricate and occasionally spiny branches, which produces plum-like edible fruits.
The cherry plum (Prunus cerasifera) is a deciduous shrub or small tree reaching 8-10 m tall. It has an erect and bushy habit, with numerous intricate, fine, and occasionally spiny branches. Young twigs are hairless and glossy. The bark is purple brown, with thin scales, with horizontal orange lenticels, fissured with age. The leaves are alternate, elliptical, ovate or obovate, 3-7 Ã 2-3.5 cm, with crenate saw-toothed margins, hairless and glossy above, hairy on the veins beneath. The flowers are hermaphrodite and appear in March-May slightly before the leaves, usually solitary, 2-2.5 cm wide, on about 1.5 cm long pedicels. The sepals are 2.5- 5 mm long with finely glandular saw-toothed margins. The petals are white, occasionally slightly reddish. The fruits are 2-3 cm wide, plum-like drupes, globose, ripening to red or yellow with a smooth endocarp. Hardiness Zones 4â9.
Distribution This plum tree is native to south-eastern Europe (Balkan Peninsula, Crimea), western and middle Asia (Caucasus, Iran, Iraq). It has been widely cultivated for its fruits in Asia Minor and the Caucasus for millennia, spreading in the Mediterranean area and Balkans since 200 BC and later in the rest of Europe. More recently, it is present on all continents, naturalised widely outside its native range throughout temperate areas1-7. In Australia and in New Zealand it is considered a weed species8-10. Due to its high variability and easy hybridisation with other Prunus species, different geographical subspecies have been described and its taxonomic subdivision is rather confusing and still under revision. These tough trees are self-fertile and require little pruning or extra care
