Early Golden Asian Plum
Prunus salicina x 'Early Golden'
When we say "Early", we're not kidding! This vigorous, upright, open grower produces heaps of medium-sized, round yellow plums that have a delicate red blush and meaty, freestone, golden flesh. It ripens a heavy crop of satisfying fruit in July, along with the super-early Kuban Komet, and two weeks before Shiro.
Make certain to thin the fruit each year - overproduction may cause biennial bearing. Discovered as a chance seedling in Fonthill, Canada; it remains one of our most hardy Asian plums. It needs a pollinizer, and any other Asian variety will work well.
