Unique hybrid plum trees, seedlings from our orchard!

Thanks to the passion of the founder of this nursery, we have been inspired into attempting to create new varieties from seed - hoping to find some that are even more hardy and better tasting than those already existing.

These plum trees are some of the seedlings that have been grown from the stones of the plums in our experimental orchard (sadly, we don’t have enough room on our land to test them all!)  They are therefore hybrids between all the varieties that we have been planting at home for years, which include most of the varieties we propagate and sell, but also many more coming from all over the world.

Please be aware that as they are seedlings, these are new surprise plum varieties; we don’t know anything about what size, what color or what taste they will have. They do have a chance to be a very good new variety, as they are the children of all high-quality fruit trees.

Many of these trees are quite mature – some of them are already over 7 feet tall and will bear fruit next year, or possibly the following year at the latest, if they are pollinated. The trees are all guaranteed hardy to at least zone 4, and all are vigorous and resistant to disease. Like most plum trees, they are not self-fertile and need a Canada Plum or an American Plum nearby to pollinate them.

We would be interested to hear what sort of fruit you get from your plum tree in a few years’ time, particularly if it is really good-tasting!

PLEASE NOTE: TREES THAT ARE TALLER THAN 5 FEET CANNOT BE SHIPPED BY MAIL. THEY ARE RESERVED FOR PICK UP ONLY.
