For that fiery personality in your life, the Plum is the rockstar of the stone fruits. Its groove and smooth stone makes it stand out from the crowd. Leos and Virgos alike will love growing the plum. Plums don't love the hot humid summers of the top end of Australia, but will grow well in all other areas.

Never underestimate the peachcot, they may look like they don't like you but once they warm to you, their generosity and their sweet and delightful temperament will never stop giving you the warm fuzzies.
