plum

Plural: plums

Language: English

Description: The plum is a fruit with a stone. Plums may be red to deep purple in colour. Gages are more likely to be yellow to green. Traditionally, when plums or similar fruits are eaten, the stones are laid around the side of the dish and then there is the excitement of counting up "Tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor, rich man, poor man, beggar man, thief" to find out who you will marry.
