Plant type
Pembina is an extremely hardy tree, bearing red fruit with golden flesh. Sweet and juicy, the fruit ripens in September. Plant with Toka or seedling for cross-pollination.

Plums grow well in Central Vermont. They are beautiful flowering trees worth planting as ornamentals. Many varieties start bearing their sweet, juicy fruit in as little as one or two years after planting. Coating developing fruit with kaolin clay (Surround® spray) just after petal drop can dramatically reduce fruit loss to the pest plum curculio.

For best pollination, plant three or more varieties relatively close together (8-15 ft). Mount Royal and Greengage plums are self-fertile and may be planted singly but will not reliably pollinate the other varieties.
