South Dakota Hybrid PlumLate Summer. SD 27. Prunus americana Unknown parentage. U Minn/SD Ag Exp Stn, 1949.
Small-to-medium fruit has firm yellow skin with bright red blush. Medium-firm yellow flesh is meaty, juicy, sweet. Excellent fresh-eating quality. Fully freestone.
Because of its very long flowering period and American pedigree, we recommend South Dakota as a pollinator for all hybrid plums. In John’s orchard it’s still blooming when the other plums have dropped their flowers. Also ripens after the hybrids are done.
Developed by NE Hansen before 1907. One of Hansen’s students took it to the breeding program at the University of Minnesota where it was later introduced. Vigorous tree. Z3. Maine Grown. (3-6' bare-root trees)
