description for "Plum: Prunus domestica 'Redheart'"

Our 'Redheart' is a magnificent Japanese plum with deep-red skin. Inside boasts a fine grain, blood-red flesh that can't be topped. Great right off the tree, superb preserved or canned. Plant with 'Starking Delicious', 'Ozark Premier' or 'Shiro' for pollination. Ripens in early August in Zone 5. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
