Posted for today’s plum Crayola challenge:
A colourful note: in 1958, Crayola issued their largest box of crayons so far – 64 colours in a wide box, with a flip top and a fitted pencil sharpener. Plum was one of the brand new colours in this jumbo range.
Named, rather obviously, after the fruit, the first recorded use as a color name in English was back in 1805.
