10a. Armeniaca mume var. mume

梅(原变种) mei (yuan bian zhong)

Prunus mume (Siebold) Siebold & Zuccarini.

Leaf blade ovate to elliptic, thin. Pedicel short, 1–3 mm. Endocarp ellipsoid, base cuneate.

Commonly cultivated throughout most of China particularly in areas S of the Chang Jiang [native to Japan and Korea].

This variety is cultivated for both its edible fruit and as an ornamental, but is unknown in the wild in China except perhaps for plants in N Taiwan that have been called Prunus mume var. formosana Masamune (Annual Rep. Taihoku Bot. Gard. 2: 137. 1932).
