Description

Introduced in 1928 by the Laxton's nursery of Bedford, this is a very heavy cropper with reddish-purple fruit which are only slightly smaller than Victoria (and which has Victoria as one of its parents). It is self-fertile and prolific, and tyhe fruit has a fine flavour, being juicy and keeping for quite a long time. Typically only used for cooking, it keeps well without deterioration.This self-fertile culinary Plum is believed to have originated from Bedfordshire, UK in 1928
