Easily grown in average well-drained soils. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system, reduce frequency. Feed with organic fertilizer before new growth begins in Spring. Thin fruit for best size and quality. Prune annually in winter to maintain shape.

A showy display of white flowers in spring yields an abudant 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.

This planting is in the East Front Yard garden .
