3 Plum Varieties on 1 Tree

If you like plums, you’ll LOVE our 3-in-1 plum trees.  You’ll get 3 different types of juicy plums from just one tree. You won’t need a lot of yard space to enjoy a large harvest year after year.  We’ve selected 10 different varieties of plum trees that thrive when hand grafted together; no matter which combination of 3 types of plums are grouped on your tree.

The fun part is, you won’t know which three types of plums were grafted onto your tree until it produces fruit - so your first harvest will be a sweet surprise!    

Get Fruit the Very First Season  
Your 3-in-1 Plum Tree is hand grafted, which means the top of a mature tree is spliced onto the root-stock of a young new tree. This process safely speeds up the growth of the tree, because it “tricks” the tree into thinking it’s more mature.

Pick Plums Over a Longer Harvest Period
Hand grafting takes a considerable amount of time and effort on our end, and we nurture the tree for years before we ship it to you. You won’t wait up to 5 years for your tree to bear fruit. Since your tree thinks that it’s older, you should have fruit the first season you plant your tree.

Since your tree is self-pollinating, you won’t need pollinating partner trees, just plant one tree and watch it grow and produce a plethora of delicious plums in 3 different varieties.

Plum Trees are Easy to Grow
Plum trees are resilient and thrive in most conditions; doing best in water-retentive soils and mulch. While areas in the south are ideal for plums, these trees are bred to be quite hardy in colder climates. That means they can often find a home in the north (if springtime isn’t riddled with too many frost advisories.)  

The best planting times are mid-to-late March through April, as this will provide the tree adequate time to grow strong roots before facing summer heat.  Your tree will flower in early spring and you can expect your plums to be ready to pick during the summer months.

How to Know When Your Plums Are Ripe.
If you’re looking for optimal flavor, it’s best to let your plums ripen on the tree. Knowing when to pick plums is rather easy. Gently squeeze the skin of the plum and if it feels soft then it can be picked by using only a slight twist.

When you pick ripe plums from the tree, they’ll keep well for 2 to 4 weeks when stored in a refrigerator. 

If you should need to pick your plums before they ripen on the vine, you can.  Simply store them in a brown paper bag or a location that’s between 66 and 75°F until they’re ready.

Popular Uses for Plums
If you’re a smoothie enthusiast, plums are a nourishing and flavorful addition to your healthy concoction. Or simply mix with apple juice, for a lip-smacking, refreshing beverage. 

It’s hard to imagine an “overabundance” of plums when you love them so much. But they will come in with vigor and you’ll have a lot of them.  They’re so enjoyable right off the tree, and they’re just as flavorful when you prepare them for use throughout the year. You can make jams, jellies and even wine. 

There are endless recipes that include plums, including the obvious: pies, breads and cakes.  Plums also add a distinctive flavor to sauces and deductions.  (Sauces that includes plums are paired nicely with pork dishes!)

Plums Provide All Natural Benefits
Your 3-in-1 plum tree will be all natural with no GMOs or dangerous chemicals.

Plums are a nutritional way to enjoy snacking while fueling your body with energy. They’re loaded with Vitamins C, K and A (beta-carotene.) Plums also contain antioxidants which have been linked to lowering the risks of cancer.

Make your own plum juice instead of buying expensive store-bought laxatives.  This can be a natural and convenient home remedy for constipation.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your 3-in-1 Plum Surprise


3-in-1 Plum Surprise Planting Diretions

Location: The Plum Surprise 3-in-1 tree grows best in USDA plant hardiness zones 5 to 9. A relatively small tree, it generally only reaches a height of about 8-12 feet with a canopy spread of 8-12 feet, but don’t let its small size fool you because it produces an abundance of plums.

 

Pollination: A grafted tree, it boasts three distinct types of plums grafted onto one trunk. The three varieties of plums compliment each other and help ensure pollination so you don’t have to worry about planting a separate plum tree as a pollinator. The tree’s small size and its ability to self-fertilize makes it an ideal fruit tree choice for a cottage garden setting.

 

Planting Instructions:  Plant the Plum Surprise 3-in-1 tree from mid-to-late March through April so the tree has adequate time to establish a root system before the heat of summer arrives.

 

Choose a planting site that offers full sun. The Plum Surprise 3-in-1 tree will grow in partial shade, but it may not produce an ample crop of plums in such a location. 

 

Plant the tree in well-draining soil that is high in organic content. Dig a hole twice the diameter width of the tree’s roots and just as deep. Place the tree into the hole. Gently spread out the tree’s roots. Mix organic content into the soil at a ratio of 50 percent natural soil with 50 percent organic matter. Fill the hole in and gently tamp the soil mixture firmly down around the tree’s roots to remove any air pockets.

 

Apply a three-inch layer of mulch around the base of the tree to prevent unwanted weed growth and keep the soil moist. Use peat moss, bark chips, recycled plastic chunks, or pine needles as mulch. Avoid the mulch touching the trunk of the tree.

 

Watering: Water the tree thoroughly after planting to remove any air pockets. Keep the soil moist but not overly wet as the tree establish itself. The Plum Surprise 3-in-1 grows best in moist soil, but once established it can withstand brief periods of drought. For the first growing season you will need to water your tree twice each week. This equals out to about two large watering cans per session. Adult trees will require a more deep irrigation which equals out to roughly 8 full watering cans each week.

 

Fertilizer: Fertilize the Plum Surprise 3-in-1 in the early spring and again in the early summer using a general purpose fertilizer such as a 10-10-10 formula. Follow the instructions on the label for application ratios.

 

Pruning: Give your new tree at least one year of growth before attempting to prune. Prune the plum tree in the late winter to early spring before the tree's foliage starts to emerge. Remove any broken or damaged branches and discard. Also, prune away any crossed or rubbing branches. Promptly prune away any shoots that appear below the tree’s graft union. Avoid pruning the plum tree on a rainy day or it could be exposed to disease.

 

Pests and Disease: The Plum Surprise 3-in-1 is fairly disease and pest free.
