Toka - hybrid approx. 48" 1/2" caliper
- A unique hybrid plum introduced by N. E. Hansen at the South Dakota Experimental Station in 1911, it is considered to be a superb pollinizer and has a very appealing flavor and aroma that puts it in a class by itself.
Trees are vigorous and fast growing with an upright growth habit and is quite dense.‘Toka’ fruits consistently but should not need fruit thinning to maintain quality. The medium-sized fruit has a flattened spherical shape and purple-red color resembling an oversized sweet cherry. The fruit is firm, spicy sweet and flavorful. Some refer to it as a candy plum, but what really draws attention is its perfume-like fragrance. Will pollinate Japanese and is considered the best to pollinate American and American hybrid plums.
