Ask a Question
  • What are the chill hour requirements for this plum?

    500+ chill hours

  • A few years ago I planted an Asian Elephants Heart plum and a Catalina European plum and didn't know they won't cross pollinate. At the time I thought my 4 way cherry tree and peach tree would all be cross fertile with the plum trees. Is there a strain of hybrid plum that would pollinate both types or am I going to have to go for a two way grafted plum tree, maybe grafting compatible scions to each of my trees or will the cherries and peach/nectarines get the job done? Thanks, Brian

    Typically you will need to match species to species to ensure cross pollination in natural environments (in case of asian plums the species is 'salicina' and the genus is 'prunus'). There are no cherry or peach cultivars, hybrid or otherwise, that will provide pollination for asian plums.

  • Can this plum tree cross pollinate with a Bubble gum plum tree?

    Bubble gum, which we carry as Toka, does cross pollinate with this variety just fine!

  • What is the bossom color?

    White and pink

  • Can Cocheco be pollinated bob Hollywood plum tree?

    Absolutey yes!

  • Would the Hollywood Asian Plum be a good pollinator for this tree?

    Yes, all of our Asian plums cross pollinate each other.

Lovely plum--looking forward to fruit

Plum tree was a bit dried out when it arrived and I was worried, but we followed instructions and it is now beginning to leaf out and seems OK. The color of the leaves is very nice.

Very nice looking bare root

Trees arrived in great condition and ready to wake up in their new home.


Large, healthy tree. Well pruned and well packaged. Have been ordering from Raintree Nursery for the past three years, won’t use anyone else. Their products are always the best!

Plants arrived healthy and on schedule; planted the day after arrival; buds began popping out a few days later.

Great healthy tree!

We bought a selection of plums and apricots from Raintree last year, and all the plants arrived looking SUPER healthy and vigorous. All plants put on a ton of stem growth last year and survived the winter this year with no problems and no special care. No fruit yet, because it s only their second year, but we did actually get a few blooms this year! (We pulled them off so as not to weaken the tree too soon.)
