Records of the wild plum date back to the 17th century, when it was used in Oregon by local American Indian tribes as a dried winter fruit. There are 26 sub-varieties of the fruit that differ in season, size, shape, and flavor. The location span of this native fruit is from Maine to Florida in the east, northward from Mexico along the eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains in the west, and along the Great Lakes region. American Plums are not commercially sold, but are found at local farmers markets when they are in season. The fruit is commonly used in jellies, jams, spreads and sauces for wild game.
