Nana Beach Plum
Natural Dwarf - Compact Plant-Incredibly Fruitful
Dwarf strain of beach plum developed by selecting five plants from over 4,000 seedlings that fruited in one year from seed. Those 5 plants provided us with enough seed to create the 'nana' strain of which we have replicated it numerous times over the course of 25 years. Compared to the other beach plums we grow, Nana’s fruit production is greater with spur type fruiting on a compact plant. After 20 years plant height averages 5 ft tall with equal width. Some plants seed to develop a more fastigiate growth habit while others are broad and spreading. Plant two for pollination and best fruit set. Will cross pollinate with other beach plums as well. Cannot ship to CA, OR, WA Ships starting in September and October of 2018.
