Chickasaw Plum – Native Hardy Plums!
A true edible ornamental, thickets of native Chickasaw plum are a welcome sight to bears, raccoons, foxes, deer, man, and other wildlife. They provide abundant crops of small bright red plums that ripen to yellow and make delicious jelly. In the early spring, while other deciduous trees are still dormant, Chickasaws announce their presence with stunning clouds of tiny pure white fragrant flowers. Drought tolerant once established. Use Bruce, Byrongold, Robusto, Segundo, Guthrie or to pollinate. Ripens early to mid June. Zones 6-9.
