(NOT TO SA, TAS) (Prunus domestica) Medium to large, heart shaped, maroon coloured fruit. Nearly freestone dark red flesh is firm, meaty, sweet, juicy. Absolute melt in your mouth Japanese plum. Great for jams, jellies, stewing and eating off the tree. Make sure you eat outside or over the kitchen sink as can be full of juice. Ripe fruit holds well on the tree. Vigorous, productive tree. Grows strongly but easily manageable. Have been told it is self fertile but has many companions (both Japanese and European) around it so not sure. Online literature says Santa Rosa or Mariposa for cross pollination.
Tree is currently growing in Southern Victoria.
You will receive 1 scion wood only (ie. a cutting from the parent tree). It will come packaged in a moisture sealed & labelled bag. While ideally it should be grafted onto your existing tree, or planted as soon as you receive it in the mail, the scion may be placed in the fridge for storage (1-4 months) Our scions are harvested from the trees in July each year & then posted to customers Late July / August.
Orders for scions are able to be placed at any time throughout the year, however please note that the cut-off date for all orders is June 30 for same year delivery. All scion varieties are sold subject to availability.
