Hi I would like to plant a Blood Plum tree. I was wondering if the plum listed above would be suitable to grow in Melbourne, I have no experience with fruit trees so i also need one that is low maintance. Does this variety have dark red flesh?
I appreciate any advise you can give me
regards
Susan

Don't know about that variety in particular- as far as blood plums go though I'd personally recommend Satsuma or Mariposa. Note with most Japanese plums (the blood plums are Jap plums) you need a cross pollinator to get good yields.

Santa Rosa will self pollinate- but isn't a blood plum. It's also a good pollinator for Mariposa and Satsuma.

Cheers,

Daniel

Hi Susan,
I have recently purchased a bare rooted two way multigraft Flavor Supreme/Mariposa plum tree from Flemings and it is growing like magic. I understand these two varieties compliment each other in cross pollination, and are both very sweet too. Being in Melbourne, you should be able to purchase a Flemings tree quite easily. Regards, Henry

I think Daleys' catalogue states that Yarrahapinni is a self-pollinating blood plum that requires approx 450 hours of chill .......
So, that means you could have a lone plant and still gets fruit .....
450 Chill Hours is somewhere between a Low to a Mid category of chilling requirements, so Melbourne with its cold climate should not be too much of a problem.
I am interested in trying out this Yarrahapinni plum in Perth, and am looking for someone in Perth / WA to form a shipping syndicate.

Cheers !

I would suggest a copper based spray Winnie making sure you use a good wetting agent.

"Its affecting the branches such that they are falling off..." That is a worry, I would be inclined to think something is going on in your soil,I would try mixing 30grm copperoxichloride in 4.5L water and drench around under the canopy. For the fungus to kill the branches it must be coming up from the ground in my way of thinking.

Looking forward to next summer to try this plum. We recently purchased a house with one growing. The tree had fruit but at the time we were unsure of what it was. Have discovered many wonderful treasures of the last few months.

I have a two yr old yarrahappini plum growing in a container. Im in brisbane. Its fruiting for the first time this year. Its been cross pollinated with a green gage
And a Japanese plum. Its baby fruit are blood red in colour already where as the green gage and jap plum are both green. Dont think you'd have any problems growing this in Melbourne. Its a beautiful tree.
