RE: shiro plums

I've seen them produce fruit without any apparent pollinator. What is generally said is they are partially self fertile but produce better with a pollinator.

Many fruits that are said to require a pollinator are sometimes self fertile but I believe Shiro is more so than most of these borderline fruits.

RE: shiro plums

Thanks for the info I think nurseries want to sell trees that's why they almost always say you need polonaiser thanks.
