Plum Tree: Facts and Info on Plum Trees

There are two basic types of plum trees, the European plum and the Japanese plum, from which all other varieties are derived. Plum trees that bear fruit produce small white flowers whereas flowering plum trees which do not produce fruit produce pink clusters of flowers

In order to grow your own fruit in most cases you have to plant two trees to cross pollinate.

Plums, the fruit of the plum tree, are rich in dietary fiber, low in calories and a great source of calcium, potassium and vitamin C.

Once plums are harvested they stop ripening. Unfortunately the plums you find in the grocery store have probably been harvested before they are fully ripe. The sweetest plums are those grown in your own back yard.

Plums are tasty when eaten fresh, but can also be used in jams, jellies and pies. Pick some up at your grocery store today!

Plum Tree Disease

Black knot is a common and often serious fungal disease found on plum trees. The hard black knots form on smaller branches eventually killing the tree if left untreated. Immediate pruning of the diseased branches can help stop the spread of this disease.

Please note that there are several types of plum trees, for additional plum tree information we suggest you do a search on Google.
