Notes:  A very impressive plum that ripens from mid September to mid October - whenever it reaches full color on the shoulders!  It has outstanding smooth, shiny, red colour with round and blocky shape, very firm texture, moderate juice - never dry, and very good flavour reaching 19-21 brix.  The variety withstood of rain without any cracking and stored exceptionally well for 60 days in the cold room.  The variety is showing exceptionally good size and can be harvested with one pick (see commercial bin harvest pictures above).  The blossom produces an abundance of pollen and is very enticing to bees, making the variety very easy to set using any of the numerous pollinators listed above.  It also is a good pollinator for Red Candy , but blooms a little earlier to rely on just each other.
