Plum Crosses Some interesting crosses between apricots and plums have been developed over the years and even between plums and other stone fruits such as cherries! Japanese plums can also provide cross-pollination. 1.25-2m (4-6') bareroot trees

Plumcot : SPRING SATIN Semi-Dwarf (Marianna 26-24) (Orchard Grade)

$50.95

In stock

An 'orchard grade' is a tree that may be somewhat shorter, slightly crooked, or a bit scratched, or for some other reason is not a perfect front lawn specimen. These trees will work just as well in an orchard as a first or number one would, since they still produce the very same fruit.

A newer plum/apricot hybrid. Medium-large, deep blue, high quality, freestone fruit. Sweet, tender, translucent orange flesh is juicy, aromatic and suggestive of apricots. Spring Satin trees are very vigorous and resistant to most plum diseases including bacterial spot and bacterial canker. Picture perfect fruit even in a cool, damp summer. They are also proving to be more winter-hardy than we expected. Real commercial potential here!

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.
