Prunus americana / American Plum


After a long quest for local populations of this delicious native edible, we are excited to bring you these American plums! Prolific in flower, colonial in behavior, guarded by thorn-like branchlets — these make excellent wildlife habitat, screening, and hedges. In big fruiting years, they produce hundreds of small, red plums which are great for preserves, juicing, or fresh eating.
