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 too much by fruit fly

Still very young. I am hoping I will get some fruit set eventually; despite the warm winters in Perth. Leaves are removed by hand throughout July to encourage the impact of chill hours. Plant broke dormancy late October. There are a few flowers, but not many.

I have removed all the leaves in June 2011. Hopefully there will be fruit next year.
