Japanese Plum : HOWARD MIRACLE Dwarf (Krymsk 1)


Out of stock

This uncommon Japanese variety is also uncommonly hardy. Most sources agree it was introduced by a Frederick Howard in the 1940s, but pinning down the details of it's origins becomes confusing. Some information sources suggest Mr. Howard discovered it, while others claim he crossed a Japanese Satsuma with a European Green Gage to come up with his 'Miracle'. Either way, the result is a highly desirable plum that is both unique and outstanding. When fully ripe, the large fruit is almost entirely covered by a crimson blush and the taste of it's firm, juicy, yellow flesh has been likened to pineapple or to a really sweet grapefruit. Bob Purvis, our stonefruit mentor, considers Howard Miracle a winner.

Pollenator definitions
Some trees and many berry plants are SELF-FERTILE ̶means the insect pollinators or even the wind can pollinate the blossoms without the need of a second tree.
NEEDS A POLLENIZER ̶ means another tree of the same type or kind but a different variety must be blooming nearby at the same time.
EXAMPLE A Liberty apple and a Wealthy apple can cross-pollinate. Two trees of the same variety ie: ̶ 2 Wealthy apples, cannot cross pollinate because they are genetically identical.
Other trees are marked as SEMI-FERTILE. These will set fruit without a second tree. However they will often bear more, and sometimes larger fruit if another variety of the same kind of tree is nearby.
You can select 2 different trees of the same kind marked as NEEDS A POLLENIZER or plant one of those along with one SELF-FERTILE or one SEMI-FERTILE. Also consider ripening times ̶ a Goldrush apple might not start blooming before a Pristine is finished.
