Title:

Description:

Red/Purple Plum

Ripens:  +8 to +20 During the Last Half of the Friar Season

Breeders comments: A red plum that matures during the last half of the Friar season.  It is firm, juicy, 18-21 brix, globose and flattened in shape, and golden yellow in flesh color.  The size has shown to be very large on peach rootstock, but struggled during the severe California heat of 2006 with weak shoulder colour and some internal heat damage.  This variety stores very well in the cold room.

Again, the blossom produces an abundance of pollen and is very enticing to bees, making the variety easy to set using one or more of the above pollinators.  It is an excellent pollinator for September Candy and several other varieties.
