    Ersinger is our first plum of 20 varieties. It's pleasantly sweet with only slight tang, plump-firm to soft with no bitterness or astringence in the skin, flavor-reminds me of soaked raisins, 95 percent freestone, a strong-growing tree that needs some branch thinning to keep out suspected brown rot.
