Plum - Yarrahapinni Blood (Grafted) 10/10

Beth P's Edible Fruits
Update: 1993 days 11hrs

Comments: - A beautiful tree; pink blossom followed by pinkish red leaves in spring which turn dark red then dark green as summer progresses. The fruit is amazing; a dark blood plum, juicy and sweet with some tartness towards the seed. It ripened just in time for Christmas. This tree tried to fruit 6 months aftere I planted it into a no dig garden but I removed them.
