Opal is one of the best tasting of all plums which is hardly surprising given that there is a Gage in in its
parentage. Opal plums have moderately firm flesh with a good sweet and rich flavour. The buds and flowers
tend to be susceptible to bird damage but otherwise is a very healthy tree. A good disease resistant
alternative to Victoria.
