Edda is a modern early season purple plum, developed in Norway specifically for northern climates. It is juicy and has a good flavour for eating fresh and for cooking.
Edda can be considered an improved form of the popular and reliable 19th century Czar variety, which is one of its parents, and is in turn descended from Rivers' Early Prolific.
It therefore makes a good choice if you are looking for a reliable plum to plant in less than perfect conditions.

Edda is a reliable cropping variety. Picking time is late July in southern England.
Edda is grown commercially in Norway, along with Opal and Victoria - both of which are good pollinators for it.
It is not as high-yielding as its ancestors, Czar and Rivers Early Prolific, which is one of the reasons for its improved flavour.
