Replacement Toka Plum
I'm giving this one just four stars for two reasons. First, because I had paid a premium for the original Toka Plum I ordered, $179. Out of the six trees I ordered altogether, it was the one that died. Second, if I had waited just one month to order (I ordered in January for delivery in March) I could have gotten it for $40 less. When I claimed my warranty on the dead plum it took Fast-Growing-Trees a couple of weeks to decide to honor it. But they did and gave me a full credit. Since they no longer had the 6'-7' trees available, I was able to reorder a 5'-6' tree plus a Brown Turkey Fig. So far the new Toka Plum seems healthy and doing well. So, four stars for 5 out of 6 trees healthy, vibrant original trees, and honoring (albeit a bit hesitantly) the warranty on the 6th. Overall, I would very much recommend Fast-Growing-Trees. If I decide to add more trees to my current property or a new property, I will definitely order from them again!
Great tasting plums!
We just found out a plum tree in our yard is a Toka Plum Tree. We ordered more and then another! We have a fruit orchard in our yard and really enjoy the fresh fruit! We cannot wait to get more Toka Plums!
Tree looks good.
Tree arrived in good shape. It's planted and doing well. Hope to be eating plums in a few short years.
Tree arrived wilted and dry. Leaves all fell off within two days. Has not resuscitated itself yet despite attentive care. The happy ending is that supplier has graciously offered to replace it at no cost. Am awaiting new shipment. Customer care representative was very accommodating and easy to work with. I'm looking forward to my next plum tree.
I am extremely pleased with all the fruits I have purchased. The Plum tree was about 6 feet tall in it's container. I had a slight problem with the leaves starting to yellow so I contacted the for advise turns out too much water. Changed the watering to allow top 2" to become dry and the tree is in the ground now doing well.
Planting & Care
Plant your Toka Plum tree in well-draining soil in a spot that receives either full sun or partial shade. Toka plums grow best in a soil that has a 6.0-7.0 ph. Amend as necessary with compost or peat moss. Place the tree in a hole that is twice as wide, but just as deep as the root ball.
Watering: Water deeply after planting to settle the roots. You will not likely need to water your Toka Plum tree unless you live in a very dry area with little irrigation.
Fertilization: During the first few years, you can add an NPK fertilizer at the beginning of spring. However, it is not necessary to fertilize your tree once it begins to bear fruit.
Pruning: Your Toka Plum only requires a little pruning in winter to get rid of diseased and dead branches. You can also do some additional pruning to lighten the branches or maintain a vase shape, but it is not necessary.
Pests: Remove dead leaves as they fall to prevent pests. You can also use a fungicide or pesticide as needed, though you will only likely need to use a steady stream of water to get rid of mites or aphids. Proper maintenance will prevent most diseases and pests.
Harvesting: Plums are ready for harvesting when they can be easily removed from the tree with a light twist. Eat your plums fresh or store them in a cool, dry place at a temperature just above freezing.
