Small Cold Tolerant Plum Tree

The Superior Plum tree is a Japanese-American cross that is grown sucessfully in cold regions and is hardy to -30. It is good for  zones 4-8.

 It Is a variety selected for it's large size, vigorous growth, and hardiness. It matures to a manageable size of 12'-15' with an equal spread.

The Superior fruit is fire red with yellow flesh, clingstone, ripening the first days of August which are ideal for eating off the tree and is also excellent for jam, jelly and desserts.

It is a great pollinator for other Japanese plum varieties and can be pollinated with Alderman, Bubblgum, Toka, or wild plums and needs a pollinator, so buy two. The Superior is a good variety for cold regions with consistent, abundant harvests.

Wild Plum Pollinators Review by David
Sybil, the Superior plum can be pollinated by the native American plum (Prunus americana), which grows wild thoughout north-east - see the distribution map on Wikipedia. So wild plums may be pollinating your tree.
Suerior Plum Review by Sybil
I have a Superior plum tree, planted 3 1/2 yrs ago and no pollinator and it is loaded with fruit every year and they are fabulous large and juicy. I had one at are previous home that was 15 yrs old and the same thing no 2nd tree. I ask when I bought it the first time does it need another plum the nursery said no.
I'm Excited About This Variety Review by julie donaghy
It's early spring in Iowa. In fact, we just had a snow storm two days ago but my superior plum trees are not letting that bother them. They already have small green leaves and they look so good! None of my other fruit trees (apple, apricot, nectarine,peach, cherry) are this far along yet. The tag on the tree states that it does well in clay soil and that is what I have....I am really looking forward to seeing what this tree looks like in a month or two!
