It is obvious where the Black Splendor plum gets its name with its blue-black skin and beet-red flesh. It is a larger than average plum and typically an early ripening plum. It is a clingstone variety, meaning that the central pit does not cleanly separate away from the flesh. The inky fruit is moderately tart balanced by rich sweet flavors.
The Black Splendor plum is available late spring and summer.
Plums are a stone fruit and members of the Rosaceae family and classified under the genus, Prunus, along with peaches, cherries, almonds and apricots. The benchmark plum variety is the Santa Rosa plum, a Japanese plum developed in America by Luther Burbank in 1906. The Black Splendor plum is larger, tarter and an earlier ripening variety when compared to the Santa Rosa.
