Sweet Treat Pluerry/Myro 29C [SPRING]
The Pluerry™: is a new fruit type from the genius of Floyd Zaiger, the first time we know of that a plum and cherry have been crossed. Prior to this so called Cherry Plums have just been small plums. This dark red fruit with yellow flesh is a complex interspecific hybrid, predominantly of plum and cherry with a hint of peach and apricot thrown in for good measure. It looks a lot like a small round plum but the taste is like a tasty plum infused with cherry flavor. It's new and unique and will be very popular. It blooms with late mid season Asian plums and needs a pollinizer. Flavor King Pluot, Burgundy and Santa Rosa plums have proven good pollenizers and gardeners will need to experiment to find the best pollinizers in their region. USDA Zones 6-9. Needs 450 chill hours.
