This beautiful four-year old plum tree is a Kuban burgundy. Ordered from Raintree Nursery, which obtained the variety from Abkhazia (near which there is the Kuban river), it has a quite heavy fruit set this year. Even in the larger version of the photo, the fruit is hard to see, because it is almost the same color as the foliage. It is a very high quality fruit, rather early ripening (relative to any other variety I have grown), and it keeps this foliage color all summer long. A lesser known variety that deserves to be better known!
Also ripening this past week: Flavor Delight aprium and Flavorosa pluot.
Just starting to ripen now: Newcastle apricot.
Coming very soon to a tree near me: Mesch Mesch Amrah black apricot (plumcot), Royal apricot, Weeping Santa Rosa plum and many more!
