CACAK’S BEAUTY

Cacak’s Beauty plum variety is ready for picking in late July and early August. The fruit is medium large, oval in shape and very appealing to the eye. The fruit’s peel is dark blue, getting blue in colour well ahead of the maturity of the fruit itself. The flesh is firm and juicy with aromatic sweet-sourish taste. The pit easily detaches from the flesh (freestone variety).
