The Stanley Plum Prune, Prunus domestica 'Stanley', has large, sweet, juicy flesh. The dark blue skin enfolds delicious, greenish-yellow meaty flesh. If you love prunes, you will want this tree!
Stanley prunes are excellent for canning, fresh eating, and drying. The fruit is larger than most plums.
The Stanley Prune is late blooming, extremely cold hardy and reliable. Harvest is late summer.
It does not need a pollinator but you can generally get more fruit if you have other plum trees nearby for availability to more pollen. It is also a great pollinator for other plum trees.
The Stanley is a heavy producer! It is freestone.
This tree blooms with white flowers and they bloom later than Japanese plums. The showy, fragrant blooms and the small size of this tree make the Stanley an attractive choice for home landscapes.
Use as an ornamental! The fruit is a bonus!
