History and description of Verity

Verity is a late season dual purpose plum raised at the Horticultural Research Institute, Vineland Station, Ontario, Canada in 1931. It was introduced in 1967. It has been grown commercially to a small extent.

Verity has medium sized oval fruit with a slight neck. The skin is puple with a bluish-purple bloom. It has soft juicy deep yellow flesh and a clinging stone. It is sweet but because it is late ripening the flavour may not develop well in poor summers in colder parts of the country. It can be used both as a dessert and culinary plum. The fruit hangs well on the tree until late September. Verity is a one of the best late plums.
