Prunus domestica 'Black Delight'
A smallish, spreading tree with white flowers in early sping followed by masses of edible, small, oval, blackish purple fruits that are sweet and juicy, with intense plum flavors and a hint of blueberry. They are great raw and also suitable for jams, compotes, cakes or sauces. In Germany, a sweet liqueur is made from the fruits and a plum flavored spirit distilled from them. This type of plum is widely distributed and popular in Europe. Cultivars will come true from seed with some variation in fruit quality.
