Gracious is a rather rare, hardy hybrid from North Dakota. From the numerous hybrid plum varieties in our test orchard, we've selected several of the best ones for fresh eating to propagate. This is definitely one of the best. Large, attractive, mottled red fruit average about 4 cm (1 5/8") in diameter. While most American Hybrid plums have a somewhat astringent skin, we detected very little in the thin, tender skin of Gracious. Sweet, juicy, yellow-orange flesh makes pleasurable fresh eating while also working well for canning, preserving or processing. The vigorous, later-blooming tree seems to pollenize well with Superior.

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.
