Prunus salicina 'Shiro'
  • Summary
  • Hardiness Zone & More

  • »  Shiro Plum is a great, early plum that bears consistently under adverse conditions.

Grandpa's Choice™ Shiro plum, known for its large, round bright yellow fruit has a mild sweet flavor. Excellent for fresh eating, cooking, canning, preserves and desserts, it is a consistant bearer of fruit. It is one of the earliest ripening plums.

Shiro has been around since 1899, so is much older than Grandpa, who used to raise a few because they were so tasty and easy to grow.
