In 1883 Luther Burbank received a packet of plum seeds from an acquaintance in the Satsuma province of Japan. From the subsequent seedlings Luther selected the most promising trees. One became the 'Burbank' plum and the other he named 'Satsuma'. It is also known as the 'Blood Plum' for it's deep red flesh. This distinctive, medium to large sized, maroon plum has a small pit and a rich, lively, almond-like flavour for both fresh use and processing.
