Plum - Beauty

Acquired: 2010
How started:

Beauty is an interspecific hybrid plum of Luther Burbank, introduced in 1911. Exact parentage is not known, but it is probably an intercross of Prunus salicina x simonii x americana. P. salicina was used for size, flavor, color and keeping ability. P. simonii was used for firmness and acidity. P. americana was used for disease resistance, tough skin (for shipping), and aromatic flavor.
