description for "Plum: Prunus domestica 'Shiro'"

'Shiro' is the best of the yellow plums in both appearance and taste. Sheer, golden yellow skin covers the juiciest of crisp plum flesh. This one is delightful to look at and delicious to eat, fresh or canned. Pollinate with a red plum. We suggest 'Redheart', 'Ozark Premier' or 'Starking Delicious'. Harvest in July in Zone 5. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
