Product Description
For big, tasty plums and exceptional cold hardiness, you can't go wrong with Alderman Plum. Alderman was specially developed at the University of Minnesota for exceptional cold hardiness, so gardeners and growers in areas up to zone 3 can successfully grow their own sweet and juicy plums. Clingstone type Alderman plums are tops for fresh eating. Plus, with our Reachables trees, you'll get plenty of these full-sized, clingstone fruits from a smaller tree that is easier to manage, suitable for containers or tight garden spaces, and super-easy harvesting. No need for ladders or special equipment.

Why buy a Deluxe package - Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. of Fruit-Boost™ Pelletized Calcium to enhance fruit quality, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula, easy-to-use tree ties (see video below), a premium tree guard to protect the trunk from gnawing pests, mowers and weed trimmers, and a copy of Backyard Horticulture for Fun and Profit—How to Make $10,000 in Your Spare Time.

NOTE: We are unable to ship our trees to PO Boxes at this time.
