Super Productive Small Tree

  • Very Productive
  • Mild, Sweet Taste
  • Long Hang Time
  • Self-Fertile
  • Ornamental with Flowers, Fruit and Fall Color

If you're in search of a beautiful and bountiful fruiting tree to add to your home orchard, the Burgundy Plum (Prunus salicina 'Burgundy') gives you lovely, sweet fruit, and a LOT of it. This variety is well known as a super producer.

Because this variety is self-fruitful, you won't need a partner pollinator. However, this early to mid-season tree acts as a wonderful pollinator for other Plums and Pluots. It's a great size and can be easily added and kept small with thoughtful pruning.

This small, rounded tree also has a wide appeal as an ornamental addition. You'll love the gorgeous white spring flowers, followed by a long fruiting season and finally the way it wraps up the season with red fall foliage color. Win, win, win!

We've told you about the abundant fruit set of deep, dark maroon plums. Let's also not forget about the long "hang time" on this variety. You can leave the fruit on the tree for 2 - 3 weeks. How convenient!

But let's get down to the most important factor. How does the Burgundy Plum taste?

They feature incredible dark, juicy red flesh that is so sweet and mild. There is a wonderful, almost wine-like aftertaste that it leaves in the back of your palate.

You'll love having this fruit at your fingertips. Brush with honey, then grill them for a delicious treat or use in salads or smoothies. Create amazing chutneys for Holiday gift giving and to spread on fresh baked bread. Or heck, eat them straight from the tree.
