Mouth-watering harvest of large, oblong purple fruits.
Plums as lovely as they are delicious. Attractive flowering trees produce a mouth-watering harvest of large, oblong purple fruits with succulent greenish-yellow flesh that turns red when cooked. Fruits are blessed with lovely intense flavor and sweetness: delicious fresh or dried. Excellent for sauces, preserves and wines; highly suited for canning. Fruits are harvestable in mid-to late-August—a full 15 days before other Italian varieties. Trees are partly self-fertile but better with pollination from other European plums (Prunus domestica). Plum tree, 10-20 ft. tall, makes an attractive addition to the edible landscape, with a lovely display of showy white flowers in spring, and gorgeous colorful foliage come autumn. Chilling requirements of 700-800 hours below 45°F.
