A medium-small Japanese plum. Sweet flavor; hardy and productive. Ripens mid-season. Pollinate with other Japanese plums.

This is a small plum with dark red skin and red flesh. It is not self-pollinating, so plan on planting another plum tree somewhat closeby. The fruit ripens in June/July. Preserves can be made with this plum.
