Description

In Parkinson’s herbal (Paradisi in Sole Paradisus Terrestris) published in 1629, Parkinson described a white and a red Wheat plum: “The white wheate plum is a waterish (juicy) fulsome plum, The red wheate plum is like the other for taste”. A dessert plum ready around the time of harvest (Hence the ‘Wheat’), it is likened to a Bullace that is small, roundish, and yellow with a red flush to the skin.This dessert Plum is believed to have originated from UK before 1629
