Mount Royal Plum



Full sun,  Zone 3

Prunus ‘Mount Royal’

Pot size #5, #7, #10

Known to be one of the best blue plums. Good for fresh eating, processing, or drying. The plums that are harvested in late Summer are freestone, blue skinned, and have a firm yellow flesh. It has a spreading canopy that is quite ornamental in appearance.

One of the only self-pollinating plums that is hardy in Alberta. Often produces on younger trees, because it does not require a second plum variety to produce fruit. Will cross-pollinate with European plum varieties. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water.
