Plum - Gulf Ruby (Grafted)

BJ1's Edible Fruits
Update: 1020 days 4hrs

Comments: -

purchased as a pot-bound throw-out from Bunnings I have teased out its roots and provided much compost. It is low chill so has lost its leaves. I am hoping that Spring will reveal a happier plant. It is going to need to cope with some fierce WA sun in its current location.

leaves and blossom emerged in August 2010. I think it is still a bit grumpy about being pot-bound previously, but it seems to have picked up toward the end of October

The plant has large (still green) fruit attached as of October 2011. I tested one of the fruit in Jan 2012, they are alright but standard plum flavour. I think the plant is missing something as it the leaves just don't have the colour of the other plums. Being planted next to a cement driveway can't help. In autumn I'll seek to improve the soil further. In the meatime I've mulched under the canopy with pinebark

Very attractive little tree, bearing a large number of beautiful red plums. The skin is a little bitter. The flesh is yellow, juicy, soft and fairly pleasant. In second year did not produce flowers, but had plenty in third year. Must wait till fully ripe (dark colour and turning soft) to get best taste.

These trees are not really suited to this climate unless you can shade them. The fruit gets badly sunburnt very easily. They have been very difficult trees for me.

The fruit I do get is not bad though - well flavoured and sweet - but doesn't have the character of an European plum.

Next to a gulfgold for pollination. Both are prolific, but the Gulf Ruby is a bigger tree. Plums taste absolutely gorgeous, rich and sweet. Gulf Ruby ripens in November, Gulfgold in December. Fruit need early bagging from fruit fly.

Beautiful plum flowers- did these fruit OK after they flowered in the first year? I have one with a gulfgold for pollination.

Hi Diana, had quite a bit of fruit set but didn't allow to mature. Will see how they go this coming season now that tree is nicely settled.

There used to be 5 fruits but the ferocious winds caused the fruits to fall.  Luckily one fruit left for me to taste.
