"Bruce" is a hybrid plum produced by crossing a Japanese plum with a European plum; by crossing with the native American 'Chickasaw' plum, this gives gardeners the best of both plums. It was reportedly introduced in the very early 1920's by a Mr. A. L. Bruce from Texas.

The fruit is very large and has distinctly red tinted skin while the flesh itself tends to be either yellow or often orange in color. Needs another pollinator like Shiro, Santa Rosa, Methley, Beauty, etc.
