Varieties of plums with a name, photo and description

Good day, dear like-minded people. My name is Sofia and I'm just a farmer. Our farm specializes in fruit trees, so I know a lot about them. Today I will talk about varieties of a tree such as plum, which are suitable for growing in Russia.

About variety and classification of varieties

In botany, under the concept of plum, a whole genus of plants is accepted, which includes more than 250 species, among which, for example, almonds, cherries, bird cherry, etc. In gardening, only a few species are considered to be plum, among which are home plum, Chinese plum, and cherry plum.

Chinese plum in Russia feels fine only in the southern regions. The most popular in the middle zone of cherry plum and plum is homemade, which was previously divided into several categories:

  • Real Hungarians
  • Damask plums,
  • Damascus Hungarians,
  • Damask Hungarian plums (greenbacks).

Today, there are so many hybrids and clones that to create an accurate classification of all varieties of plums does not seem real. Therefore, it is worth stopping at the most suitable grades for Russia, more precisely, its average strip.

Honey white

The variety is classified as dessert. The trees are tall, the crowns are extensive, the density of branches is medium. It has honey white and good yield. It is tolerant both to drought and to evil frost, therefore it grows well even where the climate is sharply continental. Its fruits are round and yellow; there is a waxy coating on the skin.

The trees are very miniature - about one and a half meters. The crowns are round and slightly raised. The first fruits appear only in August. It has a good yield - from 15 kg per tree.


It is considered (and rightfully) the most northern variety. It is very similar to Chinese plum, but it withstands the living conditions in Siberia. The height of the trees is up to three meters. Almost does not freeze, it bears fruit well even after frost at minus 40. The fruits are small, the Ussuri pests almost do not touch. Needs cross-pollination.

It is also able to withstand frost at minus 40, and sometimes even at minus 45. Among the problems, it is perhaps freezing with a slight frost after thaws.

The fruits are quite small, dark blue or raspberry color, quite sweet, but with an astringent bone. There are thorns on the branches, the crown of the plum is wide and spreading. Height - up to two and a half to three meters.
