Jamaica Plum (Spondias mombin), also known as hog plum or yellow mombin, is a tree and flowering plant in the Anacardiaceae family. It originates from tropical America, including the West Indies.

The genus Spondias includes 17 recognized species[1] of flowering plants. Jamaica Plum is a deciduous tree that grows up to 20 meters (66 feet) in height and 1.5 meters (4.9 feet) in girth and is moderately buttressed.

The branches are low, and the twigs are bare. The leaves are pinnate, 5 to 8 leaflets in opposite pairs with one terminal leaflet, oblong or lanceolate, glabrous, and broadly acuminate.

The sweet-scented flowers usually bloom from January to May. They are in large, loose terminal panicles with small purple to yellow flowers.
