One of our most cherished fruit varieties, saved from certain loss. A hybrid from New York State Experiment station about 1920, between prune and mirabelle. Elongated teardrop-shaped with a long stem, golden with pink highlights, its flavor combining the best qualities of mirabelle and quetsche, but larger than either. Juicy and emphatically a fruit for dessert, not for distilling or kitchen. Mid - late July. On Nemagard.
