Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Prue sliced fruit. 2013-09-06.

B.C KO T

Indet. plants with regular wispy foliage, which is sparse and droopy. Fruits are large elongated red plums, some with a nipple at the bottom, some without, variable shapes, but mostly a variation of plum shape. 4-12 oz. Delicious rich flavor, juicy flesh, very few seeds. This is a great variety that deserves much more attention. (very limited, 15 seeds / packet)

85 days, indet., "wispy" regular leaf foliage, below average production of elongated "fat paste" type red fruit. Very meaty with few seeds, sizes vary widely between 4 and 16 oz with some over a pound, taste is tremendous, a must grow for me each year.
