Description

Easy to Grow! A Stark Pick

The Stanley Prune Plum Tree is a consistent producer of beautiful, easy-to-grow plums – setting the standard for all plum varieties. Now one of the most popular European plums, the Stanley was developed in Geneva in 1926 at the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station, as part of Cornell University.

Beautiful blooms in the spring lead to an abundant crop of classic, oval-shaped fruits with deep blue-purple skin and sweet yellow flesh with a hint of green. The flesh is firm and does not cling to the stone. Stanley Plum Prunes ripen in early September. The fruit is tender with high sugar content, great for eating fresh and ideal for drying and baking.

Plant this fruit tree in well-drained soil that is amended with good organic matter, and you will be rewarded with bushels of juicy plums.

This self-fertile plum tree variety is perfect for gardeners in the Northeast, Midwest, and upper South. Easy to grow, beautiful to look upon, and a consistent producer, the Stanley Plum Tree is a must-have addition to your home orchard or edible landscape.

A licensed variety of Cornell University.
