Lloyd Lee of Barrhead, AB, devoted much of his life to developing hardier varieties for prairie fruit growers. One of his many contributions is this hybrid plum bearing his name. (We also sell several of his Saskatoon berries) Lee Red is often the first plum of the season to ripen, making the mid-sized crimson-maroon fruit all the more a welcome sight. Firm, scarlet-orange flesh is very sweet, which ensures they are appreciated for more than just outward appearance. Vigorous, fast-growing tree is known for generous crops.
