Americana plum is a naturally occurring hybrid cross of the American and beach plums. Unlike the other dunbars plums we grow this selection because it incorporates both the runner or stolon type growth and the small tart fruit that is produced annually all along the thick dense branches. The tart 1/2 inch red or yellow plums have a delicious flavor much with the perfect crunchy juicy texture for a wild plum..The fruit ripens over a month long during August.
Seedlings from this strain also have clean disease free foliage much like the beach plum does. The stolons or underground sprouts can be cut off and replanted elsewhere as a means of clonal reproduction. This seed selection would be a perfect hedgerow plant. The thick spurs help protect the tree against browsing.
Best to plant with another dunbars or have two Americana's to get maximum fruit set.
