Butternut
Patterson Pride Plum

Butternut is one of the few walnut varieties native to Canada. The nuts are sought after for their mild, sweet, and oily taste. Ensure this tree is planted in full sun and well-drained soil for best results.

Butternut is self-fertile but it has better yields when planted near other butternuts. It can survive in zone 2, but reliably produces nuts in zone 3.

Patterson Pride Plum is a fruit tree with weeping branches. This hybrid plant needs a wild plum tree for cross pollination before it can produce fruit. Patterson Pride's fruit is much larger and sweeter than other hardy plums, excellent for fresh eating, baking, jamming, and drying. A healthy tree grow ripe fruit in late summer and will not drop any fruit on the ground.
We recommend pairing Patterson Pride with Pembina Plum as these varieties cross pollinate well with each other.
