I picked up a flavor king pluot tree yesterday. Local nursery had fruit trees for $18. I bought a French plum and a donut peach too. After I got home, I found out that the pluot needed a pollinator. The nursery didn't have other pluots or japanese plums. Google told me that apricots wouldn't work, my neighbor has probably a dozen, and I have some little seedlings. After more Google, I remembered that I have other plums, Red Prairie, a hybrid American plum. I looked it up, and it should work. The red prairie plants are still tiny, but they'll grow. I also have a Nanking cherry, I couldn't find a definite answer about that one, but it's a plum, not a real cherry, so maybe.
