Abstract

The plum fruit has been grown specifically for consumption for over 2000 years, in many diverse regions worldwide and has a wide range of physical characteristics. Plum (Prunus domestica L.) and its dried counterpart-prune-are fruits that can create many health-related benefits when ingested. Plums are known to have been utilized in the past and the present for their ability to alleviate many medical conditions. Due to their high fiber and antioxidant contents, plums and prunes are being further researched for their ability to prevent and treat medical conditions such as cardiac related problems, osteoporosis, and cancer.
