Canada Plum & American Plum

Kerr Apple Crab is a cross between Dolgo and Haralson that originated in Manitoba. This hardy variety is so tasty that it is often compared to Golden Delicious. Kerr Apples keep well and are good for fresh eating, cooking, and juicing. As an ornamental, this tree blooms in mid-May with clusters of white flowers born from pink buds.

Although the height of this tree is listed as 20ft, it can grow to just 6ft on dwarfing rootstock like V3.

Canada and American Plum are almost identical in appearance and growth needs. These plants are short and stout fruit trees native to North America.

This hardy ornamental is excellent for both city dwellings as well as rural areas. During the spring, the white and pink blossoms are long lasting. The tasty fruit is suitable for fresh eating, baking, and preserves.

Both are commonly used as rootstock and as pollinators for other plum varieties. These trees are not widely distributed and pure seed can be hard to come by.
