Prunus x 'Candy Heart'

Famed fruit breeder Floyd Zaiger has crossed a cherry with a Japanese plum to create a wonderful new fruit he calls a Pluerry. Candy Heart's skin is dark speckled red and the delicious and uniquely flavored flesh is amber/red. It ripens after most cherries and Japanese plums and is pollinized by the Sweet Treat Pluerry or a later blooming Japanese Plum. Until very recently Cherry Plums were just a name for small plums, but now we have true crosses that incorporate cherry flavor into what looks like a plum.

Candy Heart Pluerry, best fruit in my yard

I have over 50 taste test winning fruit trees in my yard. I purchased 2 candy heart pluerry trees in 2016 under the rcommendation from the nursery. I live in Riverside Ca, and was originally worried about the chill hours required, we only get 200-300 chill hours. Well, do not fear, this tree flowers at 150 hours, excellent for southern ca. The fruit is spectacular, best eating fruit tree in my yard. This is a special tree and I wish my nursery would order some. I havent seen it since it premeired in 2016.
