An old English plum tree variety that was raised in Bedfordshire in 1923.
The medium to large deep dusky violet-purple fruits ripen almost to black and have a succulent yellow-green flesh. They ripen early to mid August and are easily stoned. A beautiful flavour for dessert use, mild and sweet.
This is a variety we get asked for very frequently and demand usually exceeds supply.
Good pollinators are Czar, Rivers Early Prolific, Jubilee, Opal and Edda.
