Nana Beach Plum
Natural Dwarf - Compact Precocious Fruiting Plants
This dwarf strain of beach plum was developed by selecting five plants from over 4,000 seedlings that fruited in one year from seed. The precocity of this strain provided us with enough seed to create the 'nana' seed source 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. Nana produces fruit similar to the wild beach plums. Plant two for pollination and best fruit set. Will cross pollinate with other beach plums as well. (Cannot ship to CA, OR, WA. Seeds are allowed though.) Ships starting in September and October of 2018.
