Dunbars plum produces a great variety of flavors from tart to sweet. Trees fruit heavy on short spurs as well as along branches. Vigorous upright trees form a single trunk. The 1/2 to 1 inch fruit range from red to blue. Recommended for its quality fruit for jams. Our Ecos strain was selected only from trees for their high quality fruit, good yields and no insect damage. Sometimes will cross with beach plum but best to have at least two trees for maximum fruit set with this natural hybrid. This tree will produce a single trunk with light branching eventually froming a round flat crown. Easy to maintain as a single trunk tree. Field plants ship in the dormant seasons in spring and fall when the leaves are off.
