Also known as Burbank’s, it is a very good cooking plum which flowers late and therefore has a useful degree of spring frost resistance. Suitable for the North. It is self-fertile and does not overcrop. Fruit is quite large and eats well. Ripens mid September, and there are less problems with wasps. A good plum for the average-sized garden.
