Toka Asian Plum
Prunus americana x salicina 'Toka'
Our hardiest Asian plum, it is so sweet, spicy, and fragrant, it is commonly called the Candy or Bubblegum plum! An Asian x American plum hybrid with small-to-medium size red fruit with yellow flesh that ripens in August. Toka was bred by Hansen in South Dakota in 1911 and more than a century later northern growers still prize it.
The vigorous, upright, self-fertile tree is covered with white blossoms in early spring, bushels of fruit in the summer, and beautiful red fall foliage. It is an excellent pollinizer; partners well with the hybrid plum Superior.
