This is one of the two plums that I have bought recently as my first foray into low chill plums. The gulf gold and the gulf ruby are intended to cross polinate each other. Hoping for fruit next year.

There used to be 5 fruits but the ferocious winds caused the fruits to fall.  Luckily one fruit left for me to taste.
