The Ptitsin #5 is a rare plum and our favourite from the Ptitsin series of plums. Plums are greenish to light yellow in colour and average 3 cm (1") in diameter. These are firm, freestone and surprisingly sweet.
What a nice plum and easy to eat fresh out of hand! The Ptitsin #5 is ready to harvest by early to middle of August in most years.
