- Mid- to late season. Compact det. plants, regular foliage, high yields of red plum / pear shaped fruit, 1-2 oz, 2.5-3" long and 1.5-2" in diameter, with firm dry flesh interior and few seeds. Fruits easily fall off the vine when ripe, which prompts for picking slightly under-ripe. Flavor is very good and sweet.
