A showy display of white flowers in spring yields an abundant harvest of dark crimson fruit each summer. Firm flesh with a wonderful flavor for fresh eating or in preserves. Fruit production is higher when another plum tree is nearby. A lovely border tree or garden accent. 400 chill hours recommended. Deciduous.
