An interspecific cross between a plum and a sweet cherry. Sweet Treat is the first of its kind, the Pluerry™: a new fruit type from the genius of Floyd Zaiger. This taste-test favorite is a complex interspecific hybrid, predominantly of plum and cherry, combining the sweetness of a cherry with that summer fresh plum zing. Much larger than a cherry, this precocious and prolific variety will hang on the tree for over a month, and the colorful fruit make Sweet Treat a true ornamental.

Please Note: Although most of our bare-root trees arrive to our warehouse in mid-December, there are a few varieties -- Mulberry, Persimmon, Quince, and Walnut -- that will not arrive until mid-January. If you order any of those varieties along with varieties that arrive in mid-December, your order will be delayed for shipment until mid-January unless you ask us to split your shipments and agree to pay any additional shipping charges resulting from two separate shipments.

Customer Reviews

A must have tree

A must have tree, the pluerry is actually a cross between a peach x plum x cherry x apricot hybrid, or 56.75% plum, 25% cherry, 12.50% peach, and 6.25% apricot. <br /><br />I bought mine from this nursery; my tree arrived very healthy and well-branched--it looks like I will have a small crop this year. I can't wait to try one.
