Gardening: Cherry-plums offer the best of both parents
Cherry-plums were first introduced in the late 1800s and early 1900s by plant breeders in South Dakota, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. They were first called cherry x plums, then cherry plums, and more recently in the United States, “chums.” Incidentally, neither sandcherries nor cherry plums are cherries. They are plums the size of cherries.
The fragrant white cherry-plum flowers bloom late enough to avoid spring frosts. Fruit size ranges from 2 to 3.5 centimetres. The skin is green when immature, becoming red to black when ripe. Flesh colour varies from yellow-green to dark red to almost black. Most are semi-clingstone, a few clingstone. They ripen from late August to early September. All cultivars are acceptable pollenizers for each other. Most are propagated by cuttings and are therefore on their own roots.
University of Saskatchewan favourites in terms of flavour, hardiness and purple flesh (which makes a far better jam) are ‘Dura’, ‘Manor’ and ‘New Oka’. Other cultivars are ‘Convoy’, ‘Green Elf”, ‘Opata ‘, ‘Sapa’ and ‘Sapalta’.
Plant one- or two-year old plants in spring, 1 to 1.2 metres apart in weed-free, well-drained soil in full sun with wind protection. Set them slightly deeper (2-5 cm) than when in the pot. Firm the soil around the roots and water generously. Ideally, the soil should be a deep, fertile loam with a high organic matter content. Avoid low-lying areas that are “frost pockets” or sites with standing water. Mulch generously with weed-free straw or post peelings to conserve moisture and control weeds.
Most soils in the brown and black soil zones have adequate nutrients. It is better to under-fertilize than over-fertilize. Especially avoid excessive nitrogen that promotes lush foliage, delays the formation of flower buds, and may also delay hardening off in fall, leading to winter damage.
These plants are generally shrub-like and bushy, varying in height from 1.5 to 3 metres. Usually no pruning is needed until the plants are four or five years old at which time they should be thinned. Declining older branches should be removed to encourage more productive younger ones.
