Italian prune plum Southern Alberta grown
Here's a picture of my only fruit left hanging (between my German shepherds the flooding and hail 6 times ) its a miracle this little guy nestled away inside the tree is untouched.
I'm very excited about these Italian plums I got last year. They are the super stars of my backyard orchard. I have the brooks variety and they seemed just as hardy as those in my zone 4 area. One of them I painted white last winter the second I covered in burlap. They both came back strong . Don't know how they would do further north but south of Calgary my Italian plums and apricots seem to be doing well and liking my climate. The apricots suffered sun damage last winter but came back tenfold the Italians just came back ten fold and more no damage whatsoever.
