Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Aunt Swarlo Polish Plum - ripe fruit. 2013-09-15.


Indet., regular leaf plants with delicate wispy foliage, huge red irregularly shaped fruits, some are squarish double hearts, and most are huge fat plums, meaty and moderately juicy, with very small seed chambers and few seeds. Fruits can grow up to 24 oz. Excellent sweet flavor. Skins peels off very easily, making it also a very good choice for sauce. (limited, 15 seeds/packet)
