Jap/Amer plum hybrids
I'm considering a couple plum trees. They'd be mostly for fresh eating and some jam.
I'm looking at the Japanese/American hybrids like Superior, Alderman, etc. Are these really that much better than either European or Japanese plums?
I'm not as concerned for winter hardiness as I am two main factors:
-Bloom time - I am prone to late freezes
-disease/insect issues in my humid climate
I'm in Central Ohio, just north of Columbus, FYI. Zone 5b/6a depending which map you believe, but have been as cold as -12F as recently as 2009 and colder in the past.
