Pipestone

Pipestone Hybrid Plum

Late Summer. MN 218 [Prunus salicina Burbank x (Prunus salicina x Prunus americana Wolf)] U Minn, 1942.

Juicy yellow-fleshed clingstone plum with excellent sweet flavor. Tough thin skin peels easily. Large deep red fruit with a golden blush.

Presumably named in honor of the beautiful red catlinite rock of Pipestone, Minnesota, home of one of the most famous Native American quarries, long considered to be a sacred site by the tribes who mined the quartzite rock for their pipes. Designated a national monument in 1937, the Pipestone quarry even makes an appearance in Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s 1855 epic poem “The Song of Hiawatha.”

Vigorous reliable tree. Z3. Maine Grown. (3-6' bare-root trees)
