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.

Cold Hardy to USDA Zone: 4

Mature Height:  14'

Superb

Tree arrived in good condition. It had a couple broken limbs but that was to be expected, being bashed by apethetic handlers all the way to the east coast from the west coast . Buds were starting to emerge. I soaked it in water 24 hours before planting as the moisture wrap had come undone and the roots were quite dry. It appears to be o k having been planted only a few days now . I will keep it well watered and keep my fingers crossed as well. Hope it pulls through. It would make a lovely addition to my small orchard here in NorthWest Georgia. Thank you RainTree Nursery
