It has quite a few white flowers at the moment. sprayed with copper fungicide and has grown out of leaf rust. New leaves appear fresh and healthy.

If you like meaty, sweet plums- you'll love blood plums. Difficult to find in the shops- they're soft and soo juicy when ripe. Being a japanese plum the chilling requirements are lower as well. Update 2012- continues to fruit well and is not bothered ...
