$30 for seedling plums and $42 for grafted
Plum trees are amazing for humans, wild life, and the white beautiful flowers of early spring have the best smell in the world. Our varieties of plums are highly disease resistant and cold hardy. You need two different plums for cross pollination, and they thrive in well drained fertile soil. They grow to be about 15 ft tall so they’re a great choice if you’re limited on space. Some plums are not great pollinators for each other and this is largely dependent on their country of origin. In order to get good pollination you need American Plum or Canada Plum to fulfill this need. They can pollinate up to 6 other plum trees that are nearby.
American plum is one of the best pollinators for other varieties of plums, and also takes very well to being grafted. The fruit is quite variable; anything from red to yellow plums can occur. The skin is tough but the inside is often very sweet and delicious. Far superior to any plum you can buy at the store. They are somewhat self fertile, but planting two different Plums (whether that’s another american plum, or canada plum, or hybrid plum) ensures better cross pollination.
