This very large and sweet, dark purple Plum is great for fresh eating, preserves, canning and drying. Brooks Plum (Prunus x domestica) was the main variety in Oregon’s dried plum industry and makes superior, very large, dried prunes, great for baking and for nutritious mid winter snacks. The Brooks Plum Tree is a popular prune plum variety favored among home orchard growers. It produces large, sweet fruit with a stunning bluish/purple skin and golden amber flesh. Delicious eaten fresh from the branch, these plums dry into the most flavorful prunes you have ever tasted. In early spring, the delicate white flowers grace the Brooks Plum Tree with their soft, floaty petals. Once the tree sets fruit, and there will be lots and lots of tiny plums, you should thin the fruit to encourage a larger plum and take unnecessary added weight of the plum tree branches.
