Listing for Plum
Plums would have to be the easiest home garden fruit trees of all. Simply prune off what’s getting out of reach and let them go. Plums are multi-branched, medium-sized, upright to spreading trees that will grow in a wide variety of well drained soils. Excellent for fresh fruit, stewing and jam. They are temperate zone fruit with European plums preferring a slightly cooler climate to Japanese-type plums. European plums are slightly smaller than Japanese which have flesh which is softer, juicier and usually yellow with the exception of 'blood' plums where the flesh is red. European plums include ‘Angelina’, ‘Green Gage’, ‘Coe’s Golden Drop’, ‘Damson’, ‘President’ and Sugar Plum. Japanese-type plums with their delicious, sweet flesh feature ‘Primetime’, ‘Crimson Glo’, ‘Santa Rosa’ and ‘Mariposa’.
We also have available delicious new Pluot® Interspecific Plums.
