Developed at Auburn University, this tree produces fruit that is ideal for canning, preserving and fresh eating. Fruit is very large and is delicious, sweet and juicy.   These plums have a sweet red flesh and very dark red skin. Ripens mid-late June. Partially self fertile, but will produce much better when pollinated with another AU variety or the Methley plum.  Ideal for zones 5-9 and requires 650 chill hours.

******Due to the sensitivity of bare root plums---we will begin shipping them in January through the end of February ONLY!.  These trees MUST be planted as soon as possible once they are received.****
