A Superior Plumcot

This delicious plumcot, as yet unintroduced, possesses marked freestone characteristics, a quality very unusual among the Japan plums that figure among its ancestors. Apricot parentage is indicated by the smooth stone and by the shape and ridging of the fruit. The flesh, by its red color, shot with yellow, indicates plainly the Satsuma plum, modified by apricot influence. As an example of mixed inheritance, therefore, the fruit has exceptional interest. As an edible fruit it will appeal to any palate.
