Toka Hybrid PlumLate Summer. (Prunus americana x Prunus simonii) NE Hansen intro, SD Exp Stn, 1911.
Rosy red fruit, up to 1½" in diameter, mottled with darker purplish-red and covered with a faint bloom.
Grower Don Johnson’s comment: “Talk about flavor: candy plum.” Ed Fackler called Toka the best-flavored plum he grew in his Indiana orchard.
Sweet, distinctive, meaty and flavorful. Not real juicy. Somewhat freestone.
Extremely vigorous tree blooms heavily every year. Diligent pruning may be required to keep it from becoming a bit of a monster.
Considered a good pollinator for other hybrid plums because of its long bloom period. Z3. (3-6' bare-root trees)
