Patterson Pride 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.

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.
