Largest of all Asian plums, indeed of all plums.  Jordan was a posthumous introduction by Stark Bro's of Luther Burbank's seedlings remaining under trial at the plant breeder's death.  Named for David Starr Jordan, President of Stanford University and a loyal partisan of Burbank.  Productive, but needs no thinning.  Fruits immense, round, brick red becoming maroon at full ripeness, flesh clingstone, deep yellow.  Shows much of the P. simoni ancestor in dense, durable flesh, discrete aroma.  Long lost, rediscovered by the late Lon Rombough of Oregon.  Late August.  On 29c.
