Dandy Plum
Prunus nigra 'Dandy'

Fruit: -3 to 4 cm, oval;
-matures in late August;

-clingstone;
-skin is yellow blushed with bright red and dotted yellow, thin, tender, but astringent and slightly bitter;
-fair for fresh eating;
-good for canning;
-excellent for jam.

Pollination: Early blooming. Probably many good pollinizers but the native Canada Plum is certain to be effective.

Hardy: To zone 2a.

Comments: Plant with other early flowering plums such as Brookgold and Ptitson #12. This is an excellent pollinator.
