|'Shiro' has flavorful plums that are medium to large, with both yellow skin and flesh. Early to midseason. A heavy producer, good for eating fresh or for cooking.
Japanese Plums are best grown in the South and West, as they are not as cold hardy as the European Plums, blooming earlier, so more subject to frost damage. Generally produce better when cross pollination occurs. Heavy bearing varieties need to have the fruit thinned.
