Valor is a large dark purple late-season plum with yellow flesh, similar to Marjorie's Seedling both in color and season, but with a sweeter flavor.
It was developed in Canada, and inherits most of its qualities from Imperial Epineuse, a dessert plum with a very sweet flavor, originating in France but mainly grown in North America. Valor's other parent is Grand Duke, introduced by the famous Rivers Nursery in England in the 1880s, and regarded as a good culinary plum.
