Freshly harvested homegrown plums are vastly superior in sweetness and flavor to grocery store purchased fruit which are generally harvested under ripe in order to survive long distance shipping. Such fruits can never achieve the luscious, juicy quality of a tree ripened plum.
Most of our plum tree varieties are budded onto a semi-dwarf rootstock. The smaller trees make harvest easier and they are usually quicker to bear and produce larger fruits. These select varieties are productive even in northern climates and most are self-fertile. Compatible cultivars are offered if cross pollination is needed. We have a diverse selection of fruit color, flesh, and uses to choose from. Dried plums, or prunes can keep for a year at room temperature in a jar. Plum jam is one of our favorites and is among the easiest to make. By planting a mix of varieties, the harvest season can extend from July through October.
