Obilinya Hybrid Plum


Obilinya Hybrid Plum

Midsummer. Unknown parentage.

Purple-red fruit with yellow-bleeding-to-red firm flesh. Grower Jesse Stevens says it has “skin less sour than many other hybrids, but still a good amount of zing.” Seems plenty hardy once established with good pest and disease resistance.

Blooms early and pairs well for pollination with Lavina and Purple Heart. Ripens mid-August in central Maine. Highmoor Farm, UMaine’s Ag Experiment Station, gives it an overall rating of “excellent!”

Z4/5. Maine Grown. (3-6' bare-root trees)

Additional Information

Hybrid Plums

Hybrid plums require a second variety for pollination. They can be planted close to form a thicket, or spaced 15–20' in an orchard setting. Include native plum pollinators (Prunus americana seedlings or named varieties Pamela, South Dakota and Toka) among the hybrids for best results. At maturity, hybrid plums are roughly 15–20' tall.
