The fact that the seed seperates easily, I presume to mean it is a freestone
or semi-freestone. As most Asian (Japanese) plums are clingstones, this
limits the number of possible cultivars. There are only a very few Japanese
plums that are freestones. None of the orginal Japanese Plums imported by
Luther Burbank were freestones. Only after crossing with other plum species
did some few freestone varieties emerge.
The fact that it is maturing this late in the season also limits the choice
of varieties. There is a variety called Angeleno that ripens about now but I
am not sure if it is a freestone or semi-freestone.
