Those of you who love a solid, meaty, European plum for fresh eating will be blown away by the fabulous, rich flavour of this hardto-find, classic prune plum. At least, that was our experience. Back in 1870 it was discovered in an abandoned monastery near Clairac, France, and was soon introduced on this side of the Atlantic. Imperial Epineuse has long been used at the National Fruit Trials in England as the standard of comparison to judge other varieties. The large, handsome, oblong plum has a mottled dark and lighter purplish-red skin covering it's wondrously sweet and flavourful greenish-yellow flesh. The vigorous, spreading tree is moderately productive.

Pollenator definitions
Some trees and many berry plants are SELF-FERTILE ̶means the insect pollinators or even the wind can pollinate the blossoms without the need of a second tree.
NEEDS A POLLENIZER ̶ means another tree of the same type or kind but a different variety must be blooming nearby at the same time.
EXAMPLE A Liberty apple and a Wealthy apple can cross-pollinate. Two trees of the same variety ie: ̶ 2 Wealthy apples, cannot cross pollinate because they are genetically identical.
Other trees are marked as SEMI-FERTILE. These will set fruit without a second tree. However they will often bear more, and sometimes larger fruit if another variety of the same kind of tree is nearby.
You can select 2 different trees of the same kind marked as NEEDS A POLLENIZER or plant one of those along with one SELF-FERTILE or one SEMI-FERTILE. Also consider ripening times ̶ a Goldrush apple might not start blooming before a Pristine is finished.
