The Kea plum comes from the area round Kea in the county of Cornwall in the far south-west of England. It is well-adapted to the very mild wet climate of Cornwall.

It is primarily a cooking plum, used for jam and preserves. The fruits are small but the tree tends to be very productive and is easy to grow.
