The Ptitsin #5 is a rare plum and our favourite from the 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.
