What could be better than an easy-to-grow tree that looks beautiful in spring, summer and fall, and give you loads of delicious fruit? When you invest in an Ozark Premier Japanese Plum (Prunus salicina 'Ozark Premier'), that is exactly what you will have.
The Ozark Premier Japanese Plum produces large, burgundy-to-purple fruit with golden flesh. It is both juicy and tart, and a semi-cling variety. Once they ripen, you can enjoy them fresh or bake them in desserts or add them to other dishes to enhance the flavor of chicken or pork. If you want to save some of that flavor for later, you can make preserves or can them for later in the year.
Early in the spring your Ozark Premier Japanese Plum will be completely covered with clusters of brilliant white blossoms. You will enjoy viewing them as much as the bees will love pollinating them. You need to plant a partner in pollination for it, and another Japanese plum such as the Shiro or Methley would be a good choice.
The dark green foliage of the Ozark Premier Japanese Plum is a wonderful sight, and it alone deserves consideration and attention. This disease-resistant variety is very hardy and does well in high heat and drought.
Your Ozark Premier plums will be ready for harvest in late fall. And you can always count on a good crop because it is a very consistent provider.
Your Ozark Premier Japanese Plum needs full sun and well drained soil. It prefers rich loam, but sandy soil will do. You might want to mulch it with compost, manure, leaves, or grass clippings to give it more of the nutrients that it needs to produce its best crop.
So what are you waiting for? Put your Ozark Premier Japanese Plum tree in your basket, and in a few short years you will be enjoying both the plums and the foliage that adorn this beautiful tree.
