Herman is one of the earliest plums available, ripening in mid-July in southern England. It is medium size, with a blue-black color, yellow flesh - similar to its parent, Czar, but with a better eating flavour, and ripening earlier.
Herman is a free-stone plum - the stone falls away easily from the flesh.

Like Czar, Herman tolerates less than ideal growing conditions but if growing for dessert use then a sunnier aspect will help. It was developed to be cold-hardy.
Advice on fruit tree pollination.
Herman was developed at the SLU Balsgard research station in southern Sweden in the 1970s, a cross between Czar and Ruth Gerstetter.
