  • Patent number: PP28997
    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 to large 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 early season, such as ‘Yummygem’ plum tree (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 15,809). The present variety produces a moderate amount of blossoms that produce a medium amount of pollen to entice good bee activity to facilitate pollination. The fruit matures under the ecological conditions described during early June, with first picking on May 29, 2016. The fruit is uniformly medium to large in size, a red and green two-tone in skin color, full red in flesh color, clingstone in type, somewhat oblate in shape, firm in texture, juicy, sweet, and very good in flavor.
