One of the best plums for Northern growers! 

The Pipestone Plum is a Burbank and Wolf cross released by the University of Minnesota in 1942. This cold-hardy plum tree produces sweet, juicy fruits with yellow flesh and excellent eating quality.  

Pipestone plums ripen in early August to early September. The large, clingstone fruit has thick, red skin that is easy to peel. Great for jams and jellies, as well as eating fresh off the tree.  

Ideal for homesteaders and backyard growers, this hardy tree is very productive. Plant a Pipestone Plum tree in full sun for a reliable crop of delicious fruits year after year!

Cross-pollination by a different variety is key to its growing and bearing success. Plant a different plum variety within 15 meters (50 feet) for best pollination.
