Ask a Question
  • Is this shipped bare root? It just says 4-5 ft. I would like to order but it is a little warm for bare root.

    Yes it is. Any product that is not listed with a pot size is shipped bareroot.

  • Is this an actual tree or just a root stock?

    This is an actual tree.

  • Size say semi dwarf ‘4 - 5. Is that the size of the tree when it arrives, or the maximum height it will grow?

    No, that is the height it is when you plant it. Pluerry trees get 14-16 feet tall.

  • Are candy heart pluerry & sugar twist pluerry good to pollinate each other?

    Yes that will work fine.

  • Hi how do I know which best pollinizer to choose?

    Another pluot or asian plum will cross pollinate just fine.

Leafed out within days

The tree arrived on schedule. I soaked the roots in water overnight and heavily pruned back the leading stem. Within less than a week the tree had leafed out. I am very impressed. Thank you!

large and delicious

Maybe my tree is just an anomaly, but I was shocked to find these fruits easily ripening to the size of a baseball, considering their partial cherry lineage. They're sweet with a very slight crunch and incredibly juicy. I've had one person say they have a slight apple taste to them, but I haven't noticed. The flavor is very much a combination of all the sweet and slightly creamy (not as prevalent as the Sweet Treat) attributes you can find in plums and cherries. No issues with disease in central CA so far.
