Plum-cherry hybrid

A plum-cherry hybrid is a hybrid between Chinese or Japanese plum (Prunus salicina) and sweet cherry (Prunus avium). Although it is often called cherry plum, it has no relation to the cherry plum species (Prunus cerasifera). It is also known as plerry (more like a plum) or cherum (more like a cherry).[1] Commercial plum-cherry hybrids include 'Nadia',[2] CherriYum!, Verry Cherry Plum (cherum hybrids, including 'Sweet Pixie',[3] 'Sweet Pixie 5',[4] etc.) and Pluerry (complex plerry hybrids[5]).

Not all hybrids marketed as "cherry plums" are plum-cherry hybrids. For example, Sprite Cherry-Plum[6] and Delight Cherry-Plum[7] are actually Russian plums (Prunus × rossica).
