As the summer comes to an end, you can look forward to the Ozark Premier Plum tree being laced with delicious plumbs in the late summer months. The Ozark Premier Plum is an easy to grow, small to medium-sized deciduous tree that produces delicious, juicy plums. This variety of plum is hardy and tolerant of adverse weather conditions, making it a great choice for any backyard orchard. The Ozark Premier Plum is known for its high yields of large, round, dark-purple, sweet fruits. This tree is vigorous and fast-growing, maturing to a height of 15-20 feet and a spread of 15-25 feet, with a rounded canopy. It is hardy in USDA Zones 5-8 and needs full sun and well-drained soil for optimal growth.
In the spring, the Ozark Premier Plum blooms with fragrant white flowers that are followed by an abundance of dark-purple plums that ripen in late summer. These plums have a sweet flavor and make excellent preserves, jams, and jellies. The leaves of the tree are dark green and ovate in shape, turning yellow in the fall. The Ozark Premier Plum is low maintenance and relatively pest- and disease-resistant, making it an ideal choice for any garden. It is also easy to prune and shape, allowing you to keep its size and shape in check.
