Semi Dwarf Plum with Great Flavor

The Burbank Plum, Prunus salicina, is a prized variety that was named in honor of the master plant breeder himself, Luther Burbank, in 1897.

This variety was originally sent to him from a tree lot in Japan and became a favorite variety of Burbank's. He would go on to use it in many of his hybrid crosses.

Burbank is a natural semi-dwarf tree, with a graceful, irregularly spreading form. It is adapted to a wide range of climates in zones 5-9. Its mid-season ripening fruit hangs on the tree for a long time, continuing to improve in flavor. This plum is a semi-freestone, which means it partially separates from the pit. It has reddish mottled, orange and yellow skin color.

The flavor is unique only to the Burbank plum. With a deep, orange-yellow flesh and a very distinct rich, sweet flavor. Burbank maintains firm flesh that has a great crunchy texture throughout the ripening period.

The Burbank Plum can be held at any height with minimal summer pruning. Preferring well-drained soil and a full days-worth of sun; favoring the morning sun if possible. It is a great tasting plum on a tree that won't take up a lot of space in your yard. You can't go wrong with the Burbank Plum tree.

Recommended pollinators: Santa Rosa, Methley, Burgundy
