Max I grew the low chill variety called Gulf Gold Plum and last year I got a handfull of plums in the first year. I am a plum fan and like it when they are rich in flavour (not watery) and juicy. The gulfgold was all of the above and like nothing you will get from woolies or coles.

If you check out Daleys Plum Tree Page You will notice that they list the chill hours. If it is around 300-400 that is usually considered good for the subtropics.

As for the Quince Tree it is a temperate fruit but has low chilling requirements and can still set fruit in northern nsw and southern qld.

Hi Correy,
I was just wondering if you had another variety nearby to pollinate the Gulf Gold Plum, or if it self-pollinated okay?

Thanks!

Hi Kelly no I don't have any varieties near by and I am getting even more plums then last year and they are setting the fruit even better as well.

So I guess that means that they are self pollinating. It is amazing that they just "spring" into action come spring from being deciduous.
