Ask a Question
  • Is the Italian prune, European Plum self pollinating? Is there a specific tree that is recommended as a companion for cross-pollination? Thank you!

    It is self fertile and blooms so late there is poor pollination overlap with other plums.

Hoping it will be plum delicious in a few years

The Italian prune plum tree came promptly, well protected in a sturdy cardboard box. We soaked it for a few hours and planted it according to directions. It is now leafing out a few days after planting. Looking good!

This has been the second purchase using Raintree, and I am thrilled with all of them. The trees came in great condition and had no problems with any other them. This last purchase came late in the season and I was a bit concerned about them being in dormacy so long, but all three trees began showing leaf bud developement within one week of being in the ground and are well on there way. Very happy with my purchases and customer serive. thank you
