Prunus domestica 'Kirke's Blue'

Introduced by Joseph Kirke of London in 1830, this large, round, dark blue plum is still the finest flavored of all. Each August, trees at the Wisley Royal Horticultural gardens produce incomparable freestone fruit with yellow, drippingly juicy flesh and fantastic flavor.

This particular variety will flourish in dry spring regions that enjoy solid summer heat. Partially self fertile in many locations, and larger yields of this fabulous fruit with a pollinizing partner.
