Late Summer. Elwyn Meader intro, Enfield, NH, 1968.
Medium-sized clingstone fruit with red-purple skin and flesh. Some say the most delicious plum we grow. Meaty, mild and rich with no astringency. We love it. Origins shrouded in mystery. It was brought to the great plant breeder Professor Elwyn Meader by a fellow who passed away before Meader could ascertain the plum’s origin.
It has uncertain pollination requirements, but we planted ours next to Black Ice and both are fruiting well. Shows tip or even branch damage following colder winters in central Maine. Small tree. Z4/5. Maine Grown. (3-6' bare-root trees)
