Prunus domestica 'Stanley'
Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips

Stanley, like most European type plums, is mostly self-fertile and will set nice crops without other pollinators, but extra ppollination always helps. Stanley is suceptible to black knot, which should be cut out and off the tree as soon as possible to control.
