Blue Plums

Varieties and Sources

Varieties we are growing are semi-dwarf trees with the exception of Black Ice which are more compact. These include Northern Blue, Mt. Royal, Ewing Blue, Northern Blue and Todd. All our trees are hardy in zone 4. Semi-dwarf trees were sourced from St. Lawrence Nurseries in Potsdam, NY. Black Ice plum trees were sourced from Woodstock Nursery in Neillsville, WI. 

Black Ice: We are very excited to offer Black Ice blue plums. This is a relatively new varietal offering with larger fruit than typically can be grown in Minnesota. The Black Ice plums are 2" freestones with dark purple-black skin and juicy red flesh. They will be harvested in late July and early August, eariler than our other plums. Prunus Lydecker PP16,621
