B.C KO T

indet., regular leaf, high yield of pink, small, plum-shaped fruit about 1-2 oz, 2.5-3" long and 1.5-2" in diameter. I checked the epidermis, and it was clear, although the later fruits appeared more red than pink, so it was a pink variety for me. Very thick, meaty walls with little juice, good flavor. High yields. It matches the description of Aker's Plum other than the skin color. See Aker's Plum Pink.
