Patterson Pride plum

weeper_11(2b SK)May 14, 2012

I have a Pembina already, but I've been thinking about getting a Patterson Pride plum: I love weeping everything(hence my name!) and in particular I'm interested because it is supposed to have a less sour skin than Pembina.

I'm a little concerned about when its fruit ripens. I'm reading mid September. I live on a farm, so it may be even later for me, as my trees usually bud out later than those in the city. Am I only going to be able to get the fruit to ripen some years? I live near Saskatoon, SK...anyone in zone 2b have this tree and have good success with it? I don't like tinkering around with trees and fruit that only "sort of" grow here.

Here in town zone 3 has just barely ripened for me before the freeze up.

*sigh* Alright, thanks for the info, Konrad, I'll have to pass on this plum.

Curious, how big will the PP plum grow? 15ft in height or larger?
