Prunus mume 'Kanko Bai'

This superior variety is prized for its profuse, beautiful, deep magenta, double petal blooms, red-tinted foliage, and orange-red fruit. A particularly ornamental selection, it blooms in late winter and produces tart, apricot-like fruit which make excellent umeboshi (Japanese pickled plum). Blooming in some regions when snow is still on the ground, it has become a symbol of hope through adversity.

A self fertile, small, long-lived tree which needs full sun. Will produce much more fruit with a pollinizer of a different variety. Also a great forage tree for early pollinators! One gallon pot.

Kanko Bai

I ordered 3 of these in 2019. All three are very healthy and are growing very fast (2021). The flowers are absolutely beautiful. Would recommend these to everyone. Only drawback is they are hard to find in stock
