Prunus mume or ume is a japanese "plum" (probably more of an apricot) used in making japanese plum wine and preserves. This variety was sourced from Rob Bester in Taroona, Tasmania. Vigorous tree, high quality fruit almost like a small apricot. This variety hasnt been tested elsewhere, although we're pretty sure like most mume, they are self-fertile or at least partially so. And would require winter chill. Interestingly, the tree hardly goes dormant, and shoots in springtime quite early.
