Obilinaja Plum on Marianna GF 8-1 (Spring 2021)


A highly flavored plum with great disease resistance. Also known as Obilinaya, Oblinaja.

This is a medium-sized, hardy tree with a flattish crown. It produces abundant crops of uniform fruit, but fruit quality will suffer if it is not thinned. Obilinaya is very resistant to black knot and somewhat resistant to bacterial leaf spot and brown rot. This variety is not self-fertile, and it will need to be partnered with another Japanese plum with a midseason bloom.

Ripening early in the season (between Methley and Shiro, mid July in upstate NY) this is a medium-large, firm, red plum with a crispy skin that is almost black when dead ripe. The flesh is red near the skin and golden around the pit, which is very small. The flavor is excellent, sweet and spicy. This is a plum for connoisseurs.

Like Lavina, this is a hybridization of a Japanese plum with a variety of "cherry plum" (aka Prunus cersifera or myrobalan) bred by K.F. Kostina and O.A. Zobransky. Obilinaja has been a popular plum variety in the North Caucasus since 1969. Its name translates as "Abundant."
