Paladin recently reminded me that I purchased the PDF of Shadowrun 5th Edition a while ago and asked me for my opinion.

Scathing opinion follows. )

From a tangent during last night's character development for a solo Shadowrun game:

The ghost plum is an Awakened variety of Prunus mume (Chinese plum) found mainly in China's Yunnan region. The tree is similar to its unAwakened parent, but the fruit is an exceptionally pale lavender.

If consumed raw by an unAwakened metahuman, the fruit has a chance to bestow temporary and unpredictable astral sight. This phenomenon is more common in areas with high background counts related to large-scale or traumatic deaths. Awakened characters are largely unaffected, though a few report difficulty casting health spells. Statistical evidence suggests that frequent consumption may make subjects more susceptible to HMHVV.

Ghost plum is more commonly distilled into liquor. The resulting ghost plum wine provides a more predictable effect, less prone to "bad trips" - albeit with a greater statistical correlation to HMHVV infection rates. It is popular in death-fixated youth cultures around the Pacific Rim. It's also a ritual component for practices related to several death-aligned totem spirits.
