Mid-Late Summer. Prunus cerasifera x P. salicina. Developed in Lithuania, early 2000s. May also be known as Avalanche. Rare variety in the trade.
Stunning golden-yellow skin is blushed dark red to pink when fully ripe—one of the most attractive plums in the orchard with fruit weighing in at just over an ounce. Amber flesh is meaty with unusual flavor notes of papaya and caramel. Ripens in mid-late September in central Maine. Seems to bloom around the same time as Toka.
Grower Jesse Stevens’ grafts survived a cold snap of –26° with only minor dieback. Highly vigorous growth. Semi-freestone and crack resistant. Z4. Maine Grown. (3-6' bare-root trees)
