Prunus domestica 'Stanley'

The Stanley plum is a sweet, richly flavored European prune plum that can be dried without being pitted! The flesh of the Stanley plum is tender, fine, and turns a beautiful purplish red when canned.  Stanley plums are excellent for fresh eating, canning, preserves and drying.  

A heavy annual producer once it matures into production age - which can take 5 years or more. Stanly is reliably self-fertile. A good plum selection for humid climates, except where black knot is a known problem.

Ask a Question
  • I'm hoping you can help me. I am looking for a fruit tree (plum, apple, or peach) that is self-fertile/pollinating that will grow in a large pot approx. 33" wide and 29" deep/high. I live on North Camano Island, WA. Will the STANLEY EUROPEAN PLUM be a good choice? If not, will you please recommend a fruit tree (plum, apple, or peach) that will be good for the large planter pot I own? Thank you for your help.

    For container growing you will do best with a miniature peach. Nearly all peaches are self-fertile and miniature cultivars can be grown in a half wine barrel for their whole life.

Stanley European Plum, Semi-Dwarf

I could not be more thrilled with the quality of the stock I received. Healthy sized root 'ball', multiple good sized branches, and those branches are starting to leaf out 1 week after planting. Worth every penny.
