La Cresent Japanese x American Plum (organic)


La Crescent is a Japanese x american hybrid plum that is round, has golden flesh and is sweet. The fruit sometimes has a pink blush on the skin when fully ripe. It is freestone and perfectly sweet, with flavour notes of apricot and honey. This variety was one of the first hardy plum varieties to be born from the Minnesota Fruit Breeding program in the early 1920s. It remains one of the best. Excellent for fresh eating and preserves. Fruit ripen early for plums, in August.  They are beautiful flowering trees worth planting as ornamentals as well, with blooms opening in early May.
