Plumcot for Southeast

wlh8723(7)February 25, 2014

The southeast is hot and humid. I understand that most plumcots will not do well here. Has anyone had any luck with plumcots? Name the best pure plum for the southeast that would be close to a plumcot in flavor etc.

WLH,
I never grew any plums back home in east-central AL; just relied on the native Chickasaw types. But, my understanding is that some of the AU (my alma mater, WarDamnEagle!) selections are pretty good - and they were bred in your neck of the woods.
I've tried a number of plums, as well as some pluots, apriums, and peacotums here - all were a bust. But, the 'Guthrie' selection of P.angustifolium is a winner here - and the fruits have a peach-like flavor. If you like that sort of thing.

Spring Satin is supposed to be a good plumcot for the SE. I just put one in this winter. It was developed in Byron, Ga and is supposed to have good disease resistance. Reviews I've read on its flavor have also been good. You can also search GW as there are lots of threads about it. Additional info below.

I have Spring Satin plumcot trees to trade and Amling trees or budwood. I'd like Gafford. I'm new. How does one send a private message? I'm looking for Adams 5 too.

I looked in support. Apparently you must enable other users to message you. I made sure mine is. John 850-twotwo8-six099. My spring satin are budding out here in North Florida and we're dipping into the low 20's tonight

I have Flavor Grenade, Flavor Queen, Flavor Rich & Spring Satin and they all do well for me. I'm in SC. If you want any of the AU series of plums, the best one is Rubrum.
