Invaluable to extend the plum season to its latest limits, Late Muscatelle combines the virtues of season and quality. An elongated, purple-black prune-shaped plum but with a pronounced flavor of Muscat not found in any other plum. A French variety, originally known as Tardive Musquee but renamed when arrived in Britain, originated in the Baltet nurseries of Troyes and first planted commercially there in 1859. Flesh greenish, tender and refreshingly juicy for such a late fruit. Among the latest of the stone fruits for the dessert, season mid September. On Lovell.
