- Clingstone variety
- Grows fast, ripens mid to late August
- Hardy hybrid
Developed at the University of Minnesota, Alderman Plum is a great choice for northern growers. It's one of the most cold hardy plum trees available—and its sun-ripened fruits are a delight for fresh eating. Alderman Plum bears huge, dark red, sweet and juicy clingstone fruits that ripen in mid July. The Japanese-style plum tree is quite ornamental, too, with gorgeous white spring blooms. Alderman Plum can bear fruit as soon as one year after planting. It requires another variety for pollination, and we recommend Superior Plum Tree. Zones 3-7.
