Red to purple flesh with a freestone. The flavour is good, the growth vigorous and its bears particularly well, in fact to get large fruits it may require thinning. The firm, juicy flesh has a sweet spicy flavour. 350 - 400 hours chill. Bears November to early December.

Planted position #9 in orchard. No observed flowering or fruit in year 1 (but very wet spring). Just love these Japanese plums!

My first attempt at espailiering. I think I may have chosen the wrong type of plum as it's not shooting where I predict. Ahh..too ambitious for a novice pruner..Few nice fruit set, but as they were on the lowest wire the dog bumped most of them off.
