About the Early Italian
The Early Italian prune has dark purple skin with
yellow-greenish flesh that runs dark wine color when
cooked. It separates freely from pit. This good
commercial quality prune variety produces ten days
to two weeks ahead of regular Italian.
Fruit is large and has a rich flavor and is very
sweet when fully ripe. It is used as fresh, dried or
canned prunes. Early Italian prunes are vigorous and
are a cold hardy tree.
