Plums there are of three sorts. The red and white are like our hedge plums. but the other which they call putchamins, grow as high as a palmetto: the fruit is like a medlar; it is first green, then yellow, and red when it is ripe; if it be not ripe, it will draw a man’s mouth awry, with much torment, but when it is ripe, it is as delicious as an apricot.

John Smith
