Maple Tree · Gardenality Genius · Zone 10A · 30° to 35° F
Ozark Premier produces exceptionally large, semi-freestone Plums that ripen in mid to late summer. Bright, red skinned fruit has good, slightly tart flavor. Forms a nice canopy and produces a cloud of white blossoms in spring. Not self-fertile, this variety requires another Japanese plum pollinator nearby to set fruit. Satsuma, Shiro, Starking Delicious and Methley can be used as a pollenizers
