Canada Plum & American Plum
no image

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.

Norkent Apple produces fruit that is desirable for fresh eating. The apples most closely resemble Golden Delicious in appearance and taste. Our stock is grafted onto V3 or Siberian Crab rootstock for better planting. If you want a great prairie hardy apple for eating, cooking, juicing or making cider, this is the variety for you.

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