Prunes are a distinct type of plum. Plums are relatives of the peach, which is the hallmark of the Burchell Nursery legacy. So we’re up on prunes. Of course, the name is thought by some to have a negative connotation, so feel free to call them dried plums if you’d rather. This fruit is sweet and juicy and contains several healthful antioxidants, so it remains a favorite in the market.

Burchell Nursery provides its customers with the utmost planting flexibility by offering most of its varieties as Ready Start® Potted Trees. Please consult with your Healthy Start Trees™ field representative for current availability and pricing.
