Aker's Plum
Country unknown  +
Description indet., regular leaf, high yield of pink, indet., regular leaf, high yield of pink, small, plum-shaped fruit about 1-2 oz, 2.5-3" long and 1.5-2" in diameter. I checked the epidermis, and it was clear, although the later fruits appeared more red than pink, so it was a pink variety for me. Very thick, meaty walls with little juice, good flavor. High yields. It matches the description of [[Aker's Plum]] other than the skin color. See [[Aker's Plum Pink]]. the skin color. See [[Aker's Plum Pink]].
