Plum Trees FAQ

What do plum trees look like?

Plum trees possess a medium-sized, rounded canopy with dark green, oblong leaves. During spring, they bloom with fragrant white or pale pink flowers before producing their vibrant, smooth-skinned fruit, which varies in color from red to yellow or purple, depending on the variety.

How big do plum trees get?

The size of plum trees can vary based on the species and cultivar. European plum trees (Prunus domestica) typically grow to a height of 15-20 feet, while Japanese plum trees (Prunus salicina) can reach up to 25 feet. Dwarf varieties, however, often stay between 8 to 10 feet tall.

Are plum trees self-pollinating?

Some plum tree varieties are self-pollinating, meaning they don't require another tree for fruit set. However, many plum varieties are cross-pollinating and need a different plum variety nearby to ensure fruit production. Planting multiple trees can often enhance fruit yield and quality.

How to trim plum trees?

Pruning plum trees helps in maintaining their shape, removing diseased or dead wood, and promoting fruit production. It's best to prune during winter when the tree is dormant. Begin by removing dead or diseased branches, then thin out overcrowded growth and shape the tree for balanced growth.

Can plum trees survive winter?

Plum trees are hardy and can generally withstand winter conditions, especially those of European origin. However, early spring frosts can be detrimental to the blossoms, potentially affecting fruit set. It's essential to select a variety suitable for the specific hardiness zone to ensure winter survival and successful fruiting.
