Prunus americana x salicina 'Superior'

Proving its name since 1933, this very hardy Asian-American hybrid from Minnesota remains a favorite both for flavor and for toughness! The very large fruit has true red skin and delicious, meaty, yellow flesh. Even folks who don't usually like plums, from Michigan to Virginia, agree this plum is Superior!

It blooms with and is pollinized by late-blooming Asian plums like Shiro, Emerald Beaut, or Toka. The tree bears a heavy crop of heart-shaped, clingstone fruit at an early age. Plums ripen in August, and keep well on the tree.

Ask a Question
  • Is this shipped bare root? And does the 4-5' Semi-Dwarf selection indicate that's its size upon shipping?

    Yes and yes. Gold star!

  • Would this pair well with a Mount Royle Plum?

    No, Superior does not cross pollinate with Mount Royal. European plums need other European plums and hybrid plums need Asian plums.
