KEEP OFF THE DIRIGIBLE PLUMS
-- Sign in front of the Lovegood's House (DH20)

A fruit growing near the Lovegood house.

  • Luna wears these as earrings (OP13), probably because they are said to help a person accept the unusual (DH20).
  • Harry thinks Luna's dirigible plum earrings look like "orange radishes" (OP13)

Commentary

Etymology

dirigible = shaped like an airship or flying blimp

Notes

  • dirigible = an airship comprised of a large, gas-filled cylindrical tube with a carriage beneath. The dirigible plums are shown floating in the air in (DH1/f), which harkens to the meaning of the word.
