Prunus salicina x cerasifera 'Sprite'

Cold region gardeners: now you can grow Asian plums, too! Sprite produces loads of delicious fruit each year at Raintree, even with our cold, wet springs! These plums are round, small-to-medium size, freestone, with a sweet purple/black skin and tasty yellow subacid flesh. Eat them off the tree in August for almost a month!

Sprite thrives in most of the nation from USDA Zones 4 onward - its myrobalan heritage makes it unusually cold-hardy. As an Asian (salicina) by Eurasian (myrobalan, aka cerasifera) cross, it will pollinize with our other Asian plums. Although myrobalan plums are commonly known as "cherry plums" (due to the fruit's small size), this is NOT an interspecific plum/cherry cross. Only 400 chill hours needed.
