Brookgold is named for the golden colour of its skin and flesh, as well as the research station where it was developed – the Crop Diversification Centre South, near Brooks, Alberta. It is an early season freestone plum that is very cold hardy - said to handle zone 2a.

It is a Japanese x American plum hybrid, and can cross-pollinate with other Japanese plums, or native American (Prunus americana) or Canadian (Prunus nigra) plums. Toka, which I also sell, is a great pollenizer for it, and Burbank should be too, given that Burbank is a Japanese plum, however I cannot find data online about Burbank and Brookgold cross-pollinating.
