A blood plum is a type of plum that is dark red or purple in color. The skin of a blood plum is thin and the flesh is sweet and juicy. Blood plums are native to China and Japan and were introduced to Europe in the 18th century. They typically blossom in late spring or early summer. The blossoms are small and delicate, with five petals that are typically a deep pink or purple color. The blossoms of blood plum trees are especially important to bees early in the year because they are one of the first sources of nectar and pollen for the bees after the winter.
