description for "Plum: Prunus domestica 'Earliblue'"

'Earliblue' ripens a full month earlier than 'Stanley'. By far the easiest-to-grow plum tree that Stark Brothers has ever developed. The tree is super hardy, and because it blooms late, unpredictable spring frosts won't hurt it. The tree is attractive, upright, and the fruit has an inviting, purple-blue skin and a sweet, tempting taste. Ripens in late July in Zone 5. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
