Presenta

This variety is absolutely trendy since its fruits are still very firm even when fully ripe and have a sweet flavor. Due to its late ripening and suitability for long storage it prolongs the plum season. With its slowly growing healthy tree ‚Presenta‘ is a good choice for house gardens in particular.
