varities & sources
The varieties we grow are Semi-Dwarf trees. These include Alderman, Mt. Royal, Ewing Blue, Todd and Northern Blue. All our trees are hardy in zone 4. We sourced the Semi-Dwarf trees from St. Lawrence Nurseries in Potsdam, NY and from Woodstock Nursery in Wisconsin. Most of our plums are sold wholesale, as it has been difficult for us to get quality looking plums for fresh eating. We make plum puree combining all varieties. Jams we make from our puree are Plum Jam, Plum Aronia Jam, and Blue Fruit Medley Jam.
It's a plum that ripens in late August. The fruit is burgundy red and excellent for eating fresh or made into preserves. The fruit is soft and juicy. The bush grows to reach 10 to 15 feet tall. Because we just planted these in 2018, it will be several years before we have Alderman plums for sale.
This freestone variety is also a prune-type plum, with firm, sweet, yellow-green flesh. It ripens in early September. It is good for fresh eating. Prunus domestiva Quebec origin. It's an European blue plum. The trees flower later than our other plum trees and pollination has been an issue.

This European-type prune plum is large and deep blue. It is excellent for canning and fresh eating. Prunus domestica sp. Todd produces very well for us.
It's considered one of the best plums on market. It produces fruit with dark red skin and yellow fresh. Sweet and juicy. It ripens in late August. One tree can produce a lot of plums, but usually every other year.
NORTHERN BLUE plums
We are not sure these Northern Blue plums sourced from St Lawrence Nursery are actually Northern Blue, because they are yellow with red flesh. But there are super sweet and juicy. They are much smaller than our other plums, but combine well.
