Description

Also called fellemberg plum

The Italian Plum tree is famous worldwide for its reliability in producing an enormous crop of large, freestone plums. Also referred to as the Fellemberg Plum and Italian Prune Plum, this lovely fruit tree features a spring bloom of lovely pink and white blossoms but is most beloved for its August harvest of delectable plums.

This European fruit has juicy, yellow-green flesh and deep purple skin. The flavor is a rich blend of sweetness with a lemon-tart edge that sets it apart from the common taste of other plums. Great for fresh eating, canning, and of course drying!

The Italian Plum is a very vigorous and cold-hardy tree. It’s considered an easy tree to get established and can be expected to bear fruit within only two years. The Italian Plum is self-pollinating.
