Grafted plum trees are capable of bearing large crops from 1 year after planting. They make delightful ornamental trees due to their mass display of white blossoms during August. Both self-pollinating and cross-pollinating varieties are available and exhibit very different characteristics.

Customer Comments on Plum Tree
Plum - Green gage
In Sth Gippsland, people have put in Coe's Golden Drop to pollinate Green Gauge. Many reports of no fruiting. You recommend Prune d'Agen. Is Coe's Golden drop the wrong pollinator being used?Interesting? | Ann Tree - Mirboo North, VIC 01-Jul-2008

Plum - Green gage
I have Prune D'Agen and Coes Golden Drop with Green Gage. Seems Coe's flowers a little later than Green Gage and the Prune with me. Check your flowering times - and maybe plant a prune... | Steve - Preston, VIC 26-Aug-2009
Dwarf Plum Gulf Gold (C)
I am growing Gulf Gold as a self fertile tree in a half wine barrel. We had an excellent crop (approx 3 dozen) for its second season. Had to support the branches. | Denfay - Ripley, QLD 01-Jan-2017
