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, Pecan, 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.

Check out our Fruit Tree Harvest Chart to plan for successive harvests.

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.

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.
