European PlumsUse fresh, canned or dried into prunes. European varieties are self pollinated, a good choice for higher elevations and cold micro–climates and are well suited to processing. These plums have a long history of cultivation and are one of the main species grown worldwide. Fruit is generally oval, smaller, and more variable in color than Japanese plums. Their flavor is usually sweet and aromatic. Prunes, damsons, and gages fall into this category.

Japanese Plums These varieties bloom and ripen earlier, tend and to have larger crops. They are not generally self-pollinated and can be tricky to grow in areas with late frosts but are superb for fresh eating. They are the favored fresh eating varieties in the United states being larger, firmer fleshed, and rounder than European plums. Japanese plum trees have rougher bark, more persistent spurs, and more numerous flowers than European plums. They are also more precocious, disease resistant, and vigorous than European plums. Japanese plum flavor ranges from sweet to tart.

Both are on Citation Rootstock which is tolerant of wet soil, induces early dormancy in dry soil, is very winter hardy, resists root knot nematodes, and produces a 12'-18' tree. By pruning you can keep your tree at any height. Trees are 2 years old, and should begin to fruit in their 4th year.

Please Note: Although most of our bare-root trees arrive to our warehouse in mid-December, there are a few varieties -- Mulberry, Pecan, Persimmon, Quince, and Walnut -- that will not arrive until mid-January. If you order any of those varieties along with varieties that arrive in mid-December, your order will be delayed for shipment until mid-January unless you ask us to split your shipments and agree to pay any additional shipping charges resulting from two separate shipments.
