Yard-size Plum Tree That Can Take a Deep Freeze

 Do you live in a colder climate and hate on your southern friends who can pick fresh plums straight from their trees every summer while you’re picking through what’s left of the measly fruit in your local big box grocery store? Well, we’re here to tell you, “No more!”

Superior Plum trees, Prunus hybrid 'Superior', were bred specifically for you! These Japanese/American crosses are hardy down to -30 degrees. You read that right. Superior is a plum tree that you can grow in your own yard that will survive sub-freezing temps!

Now, you might think that the fruit would be a little sub-par, but you will be happily surprised. Fire-red with deep golden yellow flesh, these beautiful fruits have classic plum taste. Ripening in early August, these fruits are fantastic to eat straight off of the tree, but make amazing jams, jellies and desserts.

Superior Plum trees look beautiful in the landscape and grow to a very manageable size of 12’ to 15’ tall and wide. They do need a pollinator, so you’ll want to buy two. They also work great with Alderman, Bubblegum and Toka Japanese plum trees.

Trust us when we say that nothing tastes better than a plum fresh-picked from your own tree. Buy a couple of Superior Plum trees today and make your southern friends jealous!
