Bring Tropical Fruit to Your Garden

June Plums have a unique tropical flavor with a hint of mango and pineapple, best of all you can grow them yourself!

Save time and money by growing your own tropical fruit instead of driving to grocery stores that don't carry anything close to the flavors provided by June Plums.

Grow these plums organically, and snack on them with peace of mind knowing that your fruit wasn't grown with harsh chemicals like those found at super markets.

This delightful tree will provide you with white blooms and start fruiting immediately. Once the plums have gone from green to yellow they're ripe and ready to be picked.

June Plums are compact trees that are perfect for even the smallest gardens. Only growing to about 6 feet tall, they can be planted anywhere.

They're even perfect for containers! Place them in a pot and keep them on your porch, patio, or even indoors!

If your area gets a little too cold for this tree, simply bring it indoors once it starts to get cold and place it by a large sunny window.

This low maintenance tree is drought tolerant and disease resistance. You can plant it and forget it. You'll have fruit in no time.

Since the flavor provided by June Plums is so rare and delicious this is a popular highly sought after tree! They sell fast! Order yours before they're gone!

Tree arrived on time and healthy as advertised by FGT. Only downside is the tree did not have any branches or leaves. The lower portion of the tree was tied to a bamboo stick for support, it has been tied to that bamboo and caused it to be growth bounded where it was tied. Overall, it's a great healthy tree but for the price, I was expecting a little more since I've seen YouTube videos of others unwrapping their June plum tree from FGT's competitors full of branches and leaves. Their June plum trees were wrapped in a expandable mesh net to keep the branches and leaves intact.

Haven't bought this I am just placing a review because I lived on Grenada in the Caribbean for two years and ate these a lot. They called them "golden apple". When ripe they are yellow and soft with a fibrous seed that you eat around, in this stage they are great for a sweet juice. When they are green and almost ripe is when I like them the moth its got an apple/granny smith tart kind of flavor and is still bit firm. In these green stage they are perfect for a fruit salad.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your June Plum


June Plum Planting Diretions

The June Plum (Spondias dulcis) has the amazing ability to flower and fruit at a young age. It can be easily maintained, will reach a mature height of 6 to 8 feet and accessible to USDA growing zones 4-11 (potted) / 9-11 (outdoors). The fruit on the June Plum will grow in pairs and can be eaten when the fruit is green allow the fruit to fully ripen to a golden-yellow. The full to partial sun loving plant is deciduous in winter but the fruit holds on the tree for up to 6-8 months after the leaves have dropped.

Planting Directions (potted): This tree adapts to full sun, southern exposure and can be grown indoors during the winter. Keep your indoor temperatures above 50, cooler temperatures can lead to root disease if grown in containers. Growing in a clay pot can maintain a healthy root system.

Planting Directions (in ground): June Plum is fast grower and will need adequate space to stretch out. Planting in rows 18 feet apart. Planting individual trees choose a planting location at least 10 feet from other trees and shrubs.

1) Prepare your hole by digging it three times as wide as the root ball and just as deeply.
2) Gently comb the root ball freeing up any compacted roots and place the tree in the hole, holding it straight.
3) Backfill the hole partially, pressing down gently as you go along and watering to settle the soil. This will also help eliminate any air pockets that may have formed.
4) Once the hole has been completely filled, add a layer of organic mulch around the tree to help conserve soil moisture while keeping competing weeds and grasses away.

Watering: To promote growth in the first season ensure you are generously watering once to twice a week. When watering, thoroughly saturate the soil.

Fertilizing: June Plums are moderate feeders, use ¼ teaspoon of fertilizer per gallon of water once a week. In the summer months, increase fertilization to ½ teaspoon of fertilizer per gallon of water once a week. Use a blooming fertilizer or a balanced fertilizer like a 15-15-15 formula.

Pruning: Pruning is not necessary until the tree begins to flower or fruit and after the tree has emerged from dormancy. Fruiting can begin at a young age on this tree. It’s best to allow the central branches on the tree to grow 3 feet or more before letting them branch out. Once the tree has met the desired height, prune to maintain size and form.

What time of year do june plum trees ripen?
Bernie on Sep 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: That's a hard to question to gauge. I came from the Pacific Islands, where the fruits can grow year round. Since I first received my June Plum tree, it bore fruit twice (the first one in June is just starting to ripen). I think it has a lot to do with the temperature. I am in planting zone 7.
what fertilizer and how often does this tree need?
maria s on Aug 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Fertilize at the same time as you water using a time released fertilizer 8-3-9, or similar to help your tree grow and produce a substantial crop. They are moderate feeders and may require multiple feeding during the growing season. Following the fertilizers instructions is important to not burn or kill the trees.
How long before this plant produces it first fruit?
Georgette B on May 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: My June Plum trees were in very good condition when I received them with leaves and very small nodules that later turned into fruit the same summer. I thought I had lost them over the winter as I had them in my atrium which got down to 40 degrees a few times. The leaves turned brown and fell off, it looked like a dried stick but as the weather changed and became warmer I fed it and leaves began to sprout and are in full flowering now. The fruit is different in taste and consistency. It took about 6-7 months after I potted them to harvest any fruit.
Hi, I’m in Los Angeles, California. I want to order a June plum tree from you guys. Is it possible?? I saw somewhere you don’t ship to California. Is that right?? I want a June plum tree badly!!
Bably on Mar 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, your State Department of Agricultural has agricultural laws put into place that prevents us from legally shipping this tree into your state. This is not our decision, but something we must follow.
Are your plants 100% certified organic? Non GMO?? What about the potting soil and fertilizer?
Wendy J on Oct 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: To comply with USDA phytosanitary regulations, we are required to apply a mild chemical treatment to all trees shipped over state lines. This treatment is required to prevent the spread of potentially devastating pathogens from one state to another and is mandatory for all growers. Once your trees arrive, you can use all natural and organic growing techniques to grow organic fruit.We are non-GMO. Use a potting mix for citrus (you can find it at your local lowes or home depot etc.) Use a time released fertilizer 8-3-9
