Imperial Epineuse European Plum

SKU C141

Prunus domestica 'Imperial Epineuse'

This wonderfully flavorful, sweet French prune plum has been used at the English National Fruit Trials as a standard to judge prune flavor. The medium-to-large plums have dusky burgundy/purple skin and clear amber flesh when perfectly ripe. The flavor is fabulous, and the fresh texture is dense, silky and succulent.

The tree is an attractive upright grower; not as much of a spreader as many other plums. Reliably self fruitful in most climates, but you'll enjoy more bounty with a different Euro plum variety as a pollinizer. The freestone fruit ripens in late August.

USDA Zone: 5-9

Grow Height:  12'

Ripening Time: August
