Prunus domestica 'Seneca'

This extraordinarily large plum is sweet, luscious, and freestone! Featuring beautiful purple/red skin and rich amber flesh, individual fruits can weigh up to 3 ounces each! Enjoy the fruit fresh, preserved as chutney or an amazing fruit topping, or canned solo.

Seneca is a regular bearer on an upright, vigorous tree. It needs a pollinizer and ripens in early September here in the PNW. An introduction from the N.Y. Experiment Station, it has proven one of the best European plums in the WSU Mount Vernon tests year after year.

Ask a Question
  • I have a Stanley plum and want to add a Seneca and Imperial plums, close to each other. Will they act sufficiently as pollinators? Can I order to plant in early 2023? Thank you,

    Yes Seneca will cross pollinate just fine with these plums and should be available for pre-order for the 2023 season

  • Can Seneca plums be pollinated by Santa Rosa plum?

    No, Seneca blooms much later and will cross pollinate with another European plum.

The best prune plum!

Sooo sweet! I have several varieties of prune plums, but Seneca is my favorite. Large and great flavor. Good for drying and juice as well. Thanks Raintree!

Shy bearer, very good taste, good size

Shy bearer for me. Good sized fruit, very good tasting. No problem In ripening before frost in Rocky Mountain foothills.

I understand that the productivity is quite variable depending on location.
