Description

Developed by the “Wizard of Horticulture”, Luther Burbank. This winning Japanese-type plum almost has the color of a nectarine, with red blushing over a yellow background, with golden-orange flesh that is sweet and quite juicy. Dramatic spring blooms are pristine white against dark green foliage. A hardy tree that is easy to grow and produces a large crop for fresh eating, fruit tarts, jams and jellies. The only thing birds like more than plums are mulberries, so plant one of those nearby. Introduced in 1897 by the American Pomological Society, and named in honor of Burbank for his exemplary work with plum crosses. Ripens in mid-July.

Luther Burbank Variety! Luther Burbank (1849-1926), was an American plant breeder with over 50 years experience developing renowned plant varieties — many of which are still used today.
