Sunlight darkens the color; shade lightens it. 2. Good soil conditions, including sufficient summer moisture, keep the leaves darker, while dry, sterile sites result in duller, weaker-colored leaves. 3. Young, vigorously growing trees (or shoots) have darker leaves than old, weak specimens. 4. Emerging spring leaves are lighter, with more red and less purple.
Quality is insipid and rated only fair" (Okie 1989, 59). 25 inches (32 mm) in diameter; nearly freestone. High quality; but the tree needs cross-pollination to bear.
