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.
