Prunus x 'Sweet Treat'

This Sweet Treat was the first of the interspecific crosses created by the prolific modern breeder Fred Zaiger to carry the name pluerry (plum/sweet cherry cross, with bits other prunus family members like apricot and peach). It looks like a rounded, red Asian plum, and the flavor is mostly plum as well, but the cherry brings lots more sweetness and complexity. Clingstone, with lovely amber flesh and a surprisingly small pit.

Reliably pollinated by Asian plums like Toka, Shiro and Beauty, this ripens late and is worth the wait.

Mature Height:  12'

Ask a Question
  • Is the Pluerry susceptible to the black rot / mold that can happen in plum trees?

    Yes, complex crosses are bred for flavor and color, not disease resistence.

Has to be the best root stock

I bought 3 trees. A Plum, a mixed Plum, and a Pluot. They are so beautiful. Roots were good because they were prepared right prior to shipping. There were actually branches, not 2 pointy sticks, and they are all full of buds. I will not buy another fruit tree unless it is a Raintree.
Thank you all
