Very little is known about the background of this highly uncommon variety. John Bunker (of Fedco fame) declares it to be the most delicious plum they grow. Our own experience would definitely support his opinion. Mild, juicy and rich, it is crisp and sweet with no hint of astringency. Both skin and flesh are dark reddish-purple on this meaty, round 4-5cm (1½-1¾) plum with a very small pit. The naturally compact tree has a spreading form and bears at an early age. Cross-pollination appears to be achieved by either a Japanese or another American/Japanese hybrid plum.
