History and description of Giant Prune

Raised by Luther Burbank, Santa Rosa, California, USA from a cross between d'Agen and Ponds Seedling and introduced in 1893. Was at one time grown commercially in the UK.

Large, long oval fruit with a distinct neck. Bright red skin with a fine purple bloom and numerous russet dots. Firm, yellow flesh. Stone free. Attractive looking fruit but of only moderate flavour as a dessert plum. Ideal for jams or chutney making as the free stone can be separated very easily.

Produces upright tree of moderate vigour and regular but not heavy crops.
