The Burbank Beauty Plum is another Asian plum variety from Roseburg grower Norm Lehne Garden & Orchards. When you order, you will get approximately 1-1/2 pounds of tree-ripened plums. These are picked “soft-ripe”, and will generally keep for up to a week in the refrigerator.
“Beauty” is one of the richest-flavored Japanese plums; a wonderful blend of sweet and tart that melts in your mouth. With bright red, medium-sized fruit and amber-streaked, red flesh, this was one of developer Luther Burbank’s favorites of his plum varieties, and was introduced in 1911, making it an Heirloom plum. The fruit is reminiscent of Santa Rosa, and is excellent for eating fresh or for canning.
