Sweetplum grows in clumps and can be found throughout Ruby territory.

The sweetplum is a sweet purple-blue fruit that grows throughout Ruby territory. They tend to grow in clumps on low bushes[1] and can be made into juice.[2]

History Edit

Secrets of Deltora Edit

Doran wrote about sweetplum in his book Secrets of Deltora while on the Painted Plain in Ruby territory.[1]

The Lake of Tears Edit

Lief spotted wild sweetplum bushes while running away from Grey Guards. As they descended further, they began to enter a valley where sweetplums hung all around, larger and more thicker than they had seen before. Jasmine exclaimed that the smell of the sweetplum bushes would mask their scent to the Grey Guards. The Grey Guards eventually turned back, and Lief ate a sweetplum in relief, sighing as the juice cooled is parched throat.

Poisoned sweetplum juice was served by Nij and Doj to any needy traveller who happened to pass by their home. They served this to Lief, Barda and Jasmine when they were on the way to the Lake of Tears, and they were very grateful to Nij and Doj to being so good and kind to them.[2]
