European Plums: Use fresh, canned or dried into prunes. European varieties are self pollinated, a good choice for higher elevations and cold micro–climates and are well suited to processing. These plums have a long history of cultivation and are one of the main species grown worldwide. Fruit is generally oval, smaller, and more variable in color than Japanese plums. Their flavor is usally sweet and aromatic. Prunes, damsons, and gages fall into this category.

On Citation Rootstock which is tolerant of wet soil, induces early dormancy in dry soil, is very winter hardy, resists root knot nematodes, and produces a 12'-18' tree. By pruning you can keep your tree at any height. Trees are 2 years old, and should begin to fruit in their 4th year.

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.
