Percy's Plum Tree - Zone 4 - Big disease resistant yellow plum
Percy’s Plum is a delicious yellow plum that originates in Canada from a cross between American and Oriental plum.
Percy’s plum is a relatively big yellow plum, about 1.5 inches in diameter. The plum is sweet and juicy with a flavour that is delightfully sophisticated. It is ready for harvest in late August and like most stone fruits has a limited fresh storage life.
The Plum Tree
Percy’s plum tree exhibits a rounded form and an impressive resistance to disease. It is hardy to zone 4. The tree is not self-fertile so it will need a wild plum, such as the Canada Plum, in close proximity for pollination.
Discovered in Canada, Percy’s plum is a cross between American plum (Prunus Americana) and Oriental plum (Prunus salicina).
