Sweet Treat is the first of its kind, the Pluerry™: a new fruit type
from the genius of Floyd Zaiger. This taste-test favorite is a complex

CHILL HOURS: This variety is listed as needing 450 chill hours, however there is significant success reported with lower chill hours. The grower cannot list it at less hours until more studies are done, but is confident it will do well in our area. The Sweet treat needs a Santa Rosa Plum for cross pollination. Separate purchase only recommended if a Santa Rosa is already in the area. We recommend a Santa Rosa or a Weeping Santa Rosa Plum as a companion.
