Plumred VI is a red-skinned and red-fleshed plum with globose shape. It has red to purple skin with small freckles towards the apex, and the flesh is red toward the skin, pink toward the stone with red veins throughout. Texture when fully ripe is succulent and soft with a high juice content, high brix levels and a lovely flavour. The skin has very minor astringency on chewing.
