Description

Here’s a delicious, large, Japanese-style plum that is so cold-hardy, it will gladly bear huge crops of beautiful, red plums even after the coldest winters! Developed in Minnesota, Alderman yields fruit as early as one year after planting. Burgundy-red skin gives way to golden flesh, which is sweeter than most other Japanese plums. Best pollinators: Starking® Delicious™ or Ozark Premier. Ripens late August.

Because this plum tree grows in my 9B zone.

I have a Santa Rosa plum tree which is self pollinating, but does not produce much fruit. I am hoping another Japanese plum will help.

Our plum trees died after 25+ years and some really bad weather. We went one summer without plums and now know that's not working for us. The Alderman and Santa Rosa varieties have worked so well together in the past, we couldn't choose one over the other!
