  • Patent number: PP34207
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a plum tree, Prunus salicina, and more particularly to a new and distinct variety broadly characterized by a medium size, vigorous, hardy, and productive tree. Being self-unfruitful, the present variety requires cross pollination from an apricot, interspecific, or plum that blooms during the late season, such as ‘Plumred VII’ interspecific tree (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 23,688). The present variety produces a heavy density of flowers that produce a moderate amount of pollen to entice good bee activity to facilitate pollination. The fruit matures under the ecological conditions described during late August, with first picking on Aug. 22, 2021. The fruit is uniformly large in size, globose to oblate in shape, very deep purplish red with heavy freckling in skin color, full red flesh in color, clingstone in type, firm and crisp in texture, juicy, very sweet, excellent in flavor, and virtually non-acidic in both the flesh and skin.
