|Botanical (latin) name:||Prunus 'Pembina'|
A cross between a Native plum and a Japanese plum, the Pembina plum has been gracing prairie yards since 1917. Pembina plums are freestone having a thick, reddish blue skin and yellow flesh. Ripening in mid- September these plums can attain a length of over 5cm and are great for eating fresh, but is good for jams, jellies and preserves as well.
As with all hardy plums, they like a rich, well drained, sandy loam with a full sun location. Pollinators include Brookred Plum, Opata Cherry Plum or a Sand cherry.
