Tegera

At the end of July this precious early variety surprises with violet plums which are convincing with its nice pruinosity. Its very narrow growth makes it suitable not only for commercial orcharding but especially for smaller home gardens. Aromatic mid-size fruits for fresh consumption or further treatment can be harvested regularly.
