Plum choices, Satsuma, Superior, Purple Heart?
I am in zone 5b,Central MA. I have a small orchard of apple, Asian pear, cherry and peach trees (2-4 varieties each). I've followed the forum for a few years now and have learned a lot. I'd like to thank all contributors for your advice.
I'd like to add plum in the spring. I hope to plant plum varieties that are cold hardy, taste good and have some disease resistant. I've read good reviews on Satsuma, Superior and Purple Heart. A few questions here:
Would these 3 varieties cross pollinate?
Would these varieties extend a harvesting season?
Would you recommend other plum varieties instead?
I appreciate your suggestions/advice.
