Jojo® is the world's first ever plum tree variety fully resistant (not just tolerant) to PPV (plum pox virus). It is a German cross between highly popular, early variety called Stanley, and German variety Ortenauer which brought genes responsible for its health. The fruit is very good. It is medium large to large, oval, dark violet blue, highly aromatic and sweet. It is excellent fresh as well as canned, high sugar content makes Jojo ideal for drying.

It blooms late in the spring and is fully self-fertile. The fruit ripens from late August until mid September.

Plum trees like fertile, well-drained, moderately moist but never wet soil. On dry summers watering is essential during the fruit formation. They are taller than for example peach trees but can easily be kept smaller by pruning in spring, best done after flowering. Reduce long shoots by a third and remove all thin and weak branches. Still, when a strong and symmetrical crown has developed, trees are best left to their own devices. It is fully hardy to min. -29°C (USDA zone 5), usually a little more than that.
