Notes:  A red plum that ripens a week before Fortune with GIANT size and excellent firmness, flavour, and storage capabilities.  This variety has stored with excellent quality in the cold room for more than 50 days, and the skin color will enhance to a full red during the process.  The blossom produces good pollen and is enticing to bees but we suggest planting a good proportion of pollinators.
