Fruit of the Splendor Prune

Like the Giant prune, previously shown, this fruit is a cross between the French and Hungarian prune. It differs from the Giant, however, in having a much higher sugar content. The Splendor is of uniform oval shape, and the flesh is exceedingly sweet and black when cured-a great advantage. The fruit is so sweet that it requires little sugar when cooked, and it is of superior flavor. The stone is perfectly free. The one fault of the Splendor is that it tends to cling to the tree instead of dropping when ripe.
