  • Sure is, prunes are dried plums. It's amazing how the drying process can turn an awesome fruit like a plum into a horrible thing like a prune.

  • Plum is a fruit, plumb means to something, usually water or to square off something, ex. the builder had to make sure the walls were plumb before he installed the cabinets. Prunes are dried plums.
