Mustang Cherry 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.

Mustang Cherry Plum is a cherry-plum hybrid. You'll enjoy its fragrant white flowers in spring and sweet fruit in late August (as long as there is a pollinator nearby). Mustang Cherry Plums are about one inch diameter and they have a strong cherry taste. This plant is small enough to fit in moderately sized yards.

Because of Mustang Cherry Plum’s genetics and cold hardiness, it can also be used as grafting rootstock.
