This naturally occurring hybrid between a plum and apricot (P. armeniaca × P. cerasifera). Remarkable dark purple skin. Sweet flesh is a dark reddish yellow. Reported to be self-fertile. White blossoms open few days later than true apricot varieties. Introduced to the United States by Raintree Nursery.We have yet to have this variety fruit for us, but hope that planting similar hybrids in its vicinity will help with pollination.
