Nana Beach Plum
Natural Dwarf - Compact Precocious Fruiting Plants
This dwarf strain of beach plum was developed by selecting a few plants from thousands of seedlings that fruited in one or two years from seed.
Nana represents a more compact seedling form which comes true from seed which makes the plants produce a more spur type habit meaning greater yield along the stems. The fruit size is the same or slightly smaller than other beach plums. We now are using three generations of this beach plum to grow our nana seedlings. You can also purchase seeds of it should you want to create your own nana farm of plums. Nana is no different than other beach plums other than its more compact size. It will cross with the other beach plums and will produce fruit all along the branches. The fruit colors are variable and yields on some plants are higher than most 'average' beach plums.
