Pamela Hybrid PlumLate Summer. Prunus americana seedling, Westmanland, Maine.
High-quality sweet-fleshed totally freestone medium-small fruit. Reddish skin with yellowish undertones. Productive and extremely hardy. Flowers with a pinkish tone.
An excellent pollinator for other hybrid and American plums. Many years ago, longtime Fedco growers Steve and Barb Miller purchased a hybrid plum from another nursery. The grafted plum never did well but the rootstock sprouted from below the graft and eventually fruited. It was so good, they began to graft it around the farm.
When Steve first told us about the plum, he just called it Pam (from P. americana). We decided to dignify it a bit. Z3. Maine Grown. (3-6' bare-root trees)
