Canada Plum & American Plum

September Ruby is a hardy tree developed for the Prairie Fruit Breeding Cooperative. Our stock is grafted onto V3 or Siberian Crab rootstock for better planting. September Ruby is a vigorous grower that is resistant to fire blight. It is popular among orchards for its annual production. Its apples are very good for eating and cooking. This tree blooms in mid May for an attractive ornamental.

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.
