CORRESPONDENCE. OCTOBER PURPLE PLUM. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 12 June 1914

CORRESPONDENCE. n_ Hh OCTOBER PURPLE PLUM. To the Editor. Sir,—During the past seven or tight years I have bceu experimenting in a small way' with Japanese plums. Amongst them is one, the Octobcr Purple, which I find is just the oppo site to the description given in a recent issue of the "Advertiser." I did not know they were extensively grown. On reading the price obtained in London for the October Purple, I thought a description of that plum, as grown in this district, would not be out of place. The trees were purchased from the Mcrrivalc Nurseries, Somerville, and are all of the Luther Burbank produc tion. The plum referred to isa strong, upright grower, a heavy bearer of large fruit, of delicious Havor, and as an eating plum is second to none. It ripens towards the end of February or beginning of March, and is not affected by frost. There are two others, Satsuma, or blood plum, which ripens about the same time, and the Burbank, which is a month earlier; a good eat ing plum, and ...
