Plums may have been one of the first fruits to be domesticated by humans and there are two species - the hexaploid European plum and the diploid Japanese plum. They are found around the world, but do best where the weather is between USDA Hardiness Zone 3-10 depending on the variety. What is important is that they get 800 chilling hours in order to set fruit, and that there is not a late freeze that kills the young fruit.
