This heirloom variety was discovered about 1902 by a Theodore Suksdorf in Washington State. It is still among the hardiest European plums known. Very large, oblong, mahogany-red fruit are well over 5cm (2") long, with firm and tender, golden flesh. This sweet, freestone plum is ideal for both fresh eating and preserving. Yakima typically ripens over a 2-3 week period and is one of the best for storage. Vigorous and productive tree.
