Canada Plum & American Plum
Pembina Plum

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.

Pembina Plum is an upright tree great for backyards and rural areas. This hardy tree needs to be pollinated by a wild plum tree in order to produce high yields of fruit. We recommend pairing Pembina with Patterson Pride Plum as these varieties cross pollinate well with each other.

Pembina Plum's famously large fruit grows to over 2 inches with thick, acidic skin and sweet flesh. People love this fruit for fresh eating, baking, and preserving. Do not procrastinate collecting these plums. If left too long, the fruit will fall off the tree.
