Kahinta Hybrid PlumMid-Late Summer. Luther Burbank’s Prunus salicina Apple x P. americana Terry. SD, 1912.
Another intro by the great plant breeder NE Hansen. Large 1½" roundish slightly pointed fruit is flattened at the stem end. Brilliant red-purple tart skin and translucent yellow-orange tart but quite flavorful flesh. Easy to peel; peeled fruit looks like a peeled tangerine. Or you can bite a small hole in the skin and suck out the juicy flesh. Clingstone. Very good for fresh eating or canning. Medium-sized spreading tree. Kept pruned, our 20-year-old tree remains about 8' tall. Bears more reliably than most other varieties in our orchard.Kahinta is the Sioux word for ‘sweep.’ Rare. Z3. Maine Grown. (3-6' bare-root trees)
