Black Ice® Plum
Prunus ‘Lydecker’ PP16,621
Description & Overview
Black Ice® plum produces large round black fruits that ripen in early August in Wisconsin. The fruit is sweet, juicy and semi-cling. This plum was derived from a complex cross of sand cherry (Prunus besseyi) with Japanese plum genetics. The goal by the breeder was to obtain a Japanese type plum that was hardy enough to grow in the upper mid-west yet had the quality to compete with Japanese plums readily available on the summer markets from west coast growers.

|Sweet Cherry Pie™ Cherry
From Wisconsin orchardist Bill Eubank, this new cherry tree has the sweetest tasting cherries we have ever sampled. Although it is not quite sweet enough for fresh eating like a Bing, the cherries from the Sweet Cherry Pie™ tree are fantastic for jams, jellies and pies. Imagine being able to pick cherries in your back yard for homemade summer pies! Hardy to Zone 4, even northern gardeners can grow homemade fruit. With its relatively compact size, growing to 15', this is a great tree for a home garden or small orchard.

|Cortland Apple - Malus 'Cortland'
Cortland Apple will grow to be about 20 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 20 feet. It has a low canopy with a typical clearance of 4 feet from the ground and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 50 years or more. This variety requires a different selection of the same species growing nearby in order to set fruit.
This tree is typically grown in a designated area of the yard because of its mature size and spread. It should only be grown in full sunlight. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments.
