Brookred plums are medium in size with a nice dusky pink-red skin and a golden interior. The texture is juicy, but a little firmer than some other plums. It has a good rich flavour; slightly tangy with a perfect balance of sweetness and acidity. It has the additional benefit of being freestone, which gives it a high recommendation for cooking and baking, as well as for eating fresh. Note that the peel is quite sour, and especially when it is cooked, if the peel is not removed, it has a tendency to give a sour taste to the flesh. Pollinate with Opata or Brookgold.
