Haganta is a new large blue plum variety from Germany. It is one of the latest-ripening of all plums (September), and therefore a great way to extend your fresh plum season. It makes a good alternative to the traditional English late-season purple plum, Marjorie's Seedling - Haganta arguably has a better flavour, as well as being a bit later.

The plums have an attractive scent. They also last well, both on the tree and then can be kept for a couple of weeks in a fridge without loss of quality.

Haganta is one of the heaviest-cropping of all plums (although not in the same league as Victoria). The stone separates quite easily from the flesh (free-stone).

How to grow

Haganta is partially self-fertile, and also has good disease resistant. The tree is fairly vigorous and productive.

History

Haganta was developed at the University of Hohenheim in Germany, and released in 1985. It was developed to have specific resistance to the plum Sharka virus.

It was developed from a Canadian variety called Valor, which in turn is derived from two old plum varieties, Imperial Epineuse and Grand Duke.
