|'Howard Miracle' has yellow fruit with a red blush, inside flesh is yellow, distinctive spicy flavor. Bears midseason, vigorous tree. The fruit is more acid than most Japanese varieties.
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.
