Prunus salicina ‘Scarlet Beauty’

Scarlet Beauty is a Japanese plum, developed in Florida. It has a delicious, juicy fruit, with red skin and red flesh. It is heat tolerant and mildly drought tolerant. A really hard freeze (below 20 degrees) could damage it, and it only requires 150 chill hours. A late freeze can damage blossoms.
