Pozegaca Plum/Marianna 2624 [SPRING]
A unique introduction to American gardeners! Also known as Hauszwetsche. In Eastern Europe, Pozegaca is famous for many processing purposes including preserves and brandy. An old, high quality type of plum, it has many clones, which have been developed over centuries. Ours comes from the Cornell Geneva Station. The fruit is small to medium sized with blue-black skin and a waxy bloom. The flesh is firm, greenish or amber with high sugar and a good acid balance. The pit separates easily. It is self fruitful with an upright tree form. The fruit hangs well on the tree for several weeks after maturity.
