$54.95

If you have several American hybrid plum trees which bloom, but fail to fruit, then this might be what you need. While the American hybrids, as a whole can thrive in the North where other plums falter, they are notoriously persnickety to pollinate in a cool spring. Wild plums have long been recognized as the best pollenizers. The University of Saskatchewan sent us this budwood from a tree identified as being exceptional in this respect. Tuck one in next to your other plums and use it's fruit for tasty preserves.

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.
