The Stanley Plum tree is a European plum with medium to large, oval, dark blue fruit with a thick bloom (looks like a light haze on the fruit).
Firm, tender, fine grained, yellowish green flesh with a freestone pit.
Sweet, rich flavor. Excellent for fresh eating, canning, preserves and drying.
Flesh turns purplish red when canned.
Large, vigorous, spreading tree. Early bearer. Late bloomer which is great for uncertain springs. Self-fertile, but yields more heavily when pollinated with another variety such as Mt. Royal or American Plum.
Heavy, annual producer. A standard for excellence in European plums, introduced by the Geneva Station in 1926.
3-4 Foot bare root tree

We highly recommend protecting your trees with a tree tube
Growing trees in the Northeast has proved challenging. One of our main struggles has been with deer and other tree nibbling predators.
Not only were our orchard trees being nibbled and rubbed, but now the deer/rabbits/porcupines/voles and more were heading towards our nursery stock.
I guess when you set out a buffet, the animals say ‘THANKS!’
We decided to purchase a few hundred TREE PRO Miracle Tree Tubes and were quickly sold on the benefits.
Trees that seemed to be stuck in their growth were now growing. We no longer had to constantly move electric fencing. Even trees in remote areas on the farm were thriving.
Where we had ordered them last year to offer to you, Tree Pro started selling them on Amazon (of course) and they are cheaper and offer FREE Shipping. We still highly recommend them!
