Herman Plum

Plum

Parentage: Czar x Ruth Gerstetter

Description: Herman is a reliable dual-purpose variety that produces medium, blue-black, very early fruits. Covered by thick pale blue bloom. The flesh is golden, sweet, juicy and excellent eating quality. The flesh peels nicely away from the stone, freestone. Two to three weeks earlier than Czar and with improved flavour. Delicious when picked and eaten straight from the tree. A very hardy plum that suits most UK climates.

History: Developed at Balsgard Fruit Breeding Station, Sweden in 1972.
