Medium-sized roundish ovate pointed fruit has thick deep purple skin and a thin bloom. Meaty tart strong-flavored orange flesh.
Frank Foltz of the old Northwind Nursery in Minnesota described it to us as having a “strong, spice flavor on the tart side…too tart, perhaps, for most peoples’ taste, but I like the sprightly flavor.” We like it, too!

Hybrid plums require a second variety for pollination. They can be planted close to form a thicket, or spaced 15–20' in an orchard setting. Include native plum pollinators (Prunus americana seedlings or named varieties Pamela, South Dakota and Toka) among the hybrids for best results. At maturity, hybrid plums are roughly 15–20' tall.
