Prunus salicina x 'Emerald Beaut'

A delicious and unusual late-season Asian plum. Ripe fruit holds on the tree longer than any other stone fruit - two months or more. It continues to sweeten, becoming exceptionally sweet, but it remains crisp and crunchy! The Beaut has green skin, which gets yellower as it fully ripens, and yellow/orange, clingstone flesh. It may taste like a pluot, but it's all plum.

A vigorous and upright grower, it needs 600-700 chill hours to reliably set its glorious fruit. Although developed by Floyd Zaiger, it is NOT an interspecific variety. Another Asian plum or a pluot are good pollinizers. Fruit may not fully ripen in cool summer areas.

Ask a Question
  • Will a Toka or Black Ice hybrid plums pollinate this tree?

    Yes, all Asian plums should be fine, especially Toka.

  • How long till it bears?

    3-4 years after planting, sometimes earlier and sometimes later. Plums can be finicky!

  • Will a regular Santa Rosa Plum pollinate an Emerald Beauty Plum?

    Absolutely yes

Emerald Beaut Plum

My bare root emerald beaut tree came nicely packaged and looks healthy. I will say, however, that I bought an emerald beaut tree about 5 years ago and was disappointed to find out years later when the tree started to produce fruit that I was given a mislabeled tree that was NOT an emerald beaut. I complained but this was unfortunately never resolved, so I just had to buy another one. Hopefully this time I was given the right tree.
