The fruit

The skin of Hardygold is yellow. Fofonoff is a firm, juicy and sweet plum. It is a good plum for fresh eating and jams and it matures in mid-August.

The tree

The plum tree has to be pollinated by a Canada plum or an American plum to set a good amount of fruit. It is hardy to zone 3.

Origin

This tree was given to us as the variety "Fofonoff - Homesteader", but it ended up to be something else!  We think it is either a Fofonoff seedling or an American plum seedling.
