The Sprout’s Sunshine is a flavourful plum which originated not too far from our nursery. Yellowish-green-coloured plums that are firm, yellow-fleshed and semi-freestone. Sprout's Sunshine Plums deliciously balance a sweet flavour with some tang, and their firmness proves to be an excellent trade for baking!
These plums produce good yields and average 3 to 4 cm (1 1/2") in size. Sprout's Sunshine plums ripen around late August and keep well after harvesting. An open-pollinated seedling developed by Sprout Farms in Bon Accord, Alberta.
