Obilinya Hybrid Plum


Obilinya Hybrid Plum

Prunus Midsummer. Unknown parentage.

Purple-red fruit with yellow-bleeding-to-red firm flesh. Grower Jesse Stevens says it has “skin less sour than many other hybrids, but still a good amount of zing.” Seems plenty hardy once established with good pest and disease resistance.

Blooms early and pairs well for pollination with Lavina and Purple Heart. Ripens mid-August in central Maine. Highmoor Farm, UMaine’s Ag Experiment Station, gives it an overall rating of “excellent!”

Z4/5. Maine Grown. (3-6' bare-root trees)

Additional Information

Hybrid Plums

Hybrid plums require a second variety for pollination. The North American native plum Prunus americana is a particularly good pollinator for hybrid plums. Your plum trees can be planted close to form a thicket, or spaced 15–20' in an orchard setting.

At maturity, hybrid plums are roughly 15–20' tall.
