Plum ‘Fortune’

Fortune Plum

One of the best tasting plums, Fortune is a semi-clingstone plum that bears large, round fruit with bright red skin.  The flesh is dark yellow, sweet and juicy with excellent fragrant flavour. The fruit ripens from late December into early January.  The tree is a moderately vigorous grower with consistent high production.  It has an upright to slightly spreading growth habit, which makes it an excellent shade tree for small gardens, especially in spring when it is covered in blossoms.  Cross-pollinate with:  ‘Souvenir’, ‘Harry Pickstone’, ‘Angeleno’ or ‘Pioneer’.
