Discover the beauty and flavor of Prunus hortulana, more commonly known as the Hortulan Plum or Wild Goose Plum. This fruit shrub/small tree, part of the rose family, thrives in the central United States, from Arkansas to West Virginia. A deciduous tree, it grows to a height of 20 feet or more with a trunk that can span nearly 6 inches in diameter. The green leaves are smooth on top and delicately hairy on the underside. During spring, clusters of 2-4 frgrant white flowers bloom, making way for the fruit - an enjoyable blend of red or yellow drupes that are uniquely dotted white and boast a reportedly pleasant-tasting sweet-tart flavor, which is great for eating, pies, jams, and preserves. The Prunus hortulana is often found growing in upland forests and close to streams. They grow well as border hedges and urban sites, and is a favorite of pollinators. Don't miss this opportunity to experience this native shrub Hortulan Plum which embodies a perfect fusion of natural beauty and delightful flavor.
