Waneta Hybrid Plum


Waneta Hybrid Plum

Midsummer. (Prunus salicina Apple x Prunus americana Terry) NE Hansen intro, SD Exp Stn, 1913.

Released when hybrid plums were an important and commercially viable crop. Named after a Yanktonai youth who won fame in the War of 1812 and later became a great chief.

Large, somewhat pointed, 1½-2" reddish-maroon fruit. Sweet tender translucent orange flesh is very juicy but not dripping. Medium-thick skin, tart and easy to peel. Delicious overall taste.

Hansen said of Waneta: “My belief is that in this variety I have combined the best points of the native and the Japanese plum. It is probably the largest [fruit] of over 10,000 seedlings.”

Early blooming healthy open spreading tree bears reliably in John’s orchard. Z3. Maine Grown. (3-6' bare-root trees)
