Horse Chestnut is a medium sized deciduous tree that is native to Greece but has been grown in North America for hundreds of years. Produces large nuts and both nuts and foliage have many medicinal uses.

Pembina Plum is an upright tree great for backyards and rural areas. This tree needs to be pollinated by a wild plum tree in order to produce high yields of fruit.

Pembina Plum’s fruit grows to about 2 inches with thick, acidic skin and sweet flesh. People love this fruit for fresh eating, baking, and preserving. Do not procrastinate collecting these plums. If left too long, fallen fruit will off the tree and leave a mess on your lawn.
