The Best Pollinator Plum You Can Buy
Why Bubblegum Toka Plum Trees?
Delivering a huge, healthy harvest of plums, the Toka Plum Tree is a heavy producer. Even better? It produces tons of pollen to fertilize your other plum trees, meaning you'll get an abundance of plums from every plum tree in your garden with the Toka.
It’s known as the 'pollinator' plum. But it’s also perfect for growing anywhere. The Toka is synonymous with big harvests and strong growth, no matter where you’re located because it’s cold hardy down to a whopping -20 degrees. And it almost thrives on neglect, producing fruit through drought conditions. You'll get tons of fruit hassle-free…no pruning, no fertilizing, and no green thumb necessary.
Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better
When you order your Toka from Fast Growing Trees, you'll get juicy plums in just two years or sooner and a tree that works hard to grow your garden. In fact, our larger trees can fruit the first year!
That’s because we’ve grown and nurtured your Toka Plum at our nursery from day one, so it’s ready to take off when it arrives at your door. Plus, unlike other nurseries and garden centers, we never ship bare root.
These other plums on the market tend to die back after planting, but our Toka Plum is grafted from reliable, healthy rootstock so that you get the same great benefits, year after year. Whether you’re looking for a pollinator or just a single fruit tree and mini orchard for your garden, the Toka has it all.

Tree is healthy and doing well.
Tree arrived in excellent condition. Well formed and sized per description. Especially like the “Drop and Grow” bag it came it. Planted immediately in October. Look forward to Spring in Colorado and what we will see in terms of blossoms.
The tree arrived in great condition. Unfortunately the week after I planted it we got hit with a heat wave and I’m doing the best I can to keep it from getting fried. I hope it pulls through
Fast Growing Trees have good variety of trees. It was the only place I found what I wanted.
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!
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your Toka Plum in well-draining soil and in full to partial sun.
Dig a hole that is twice as wide but just as deep as the root ball. Place your tree, backfill your soil and water to settle the roots. Mulch the surrounding soil to conserve moisture.
2. Watering: You will not likely need to water your Toka Plum Tree unless you live in a very dry area with little irrigation. If you’re not sure when to water, check your surrounding soil about 3 inches down. If the soil is dry here, it’s time to water.
3. Fertilizing: During the first few years, you can add balanced fertilizer at the beginning of spring. However, it is not necessary to fertilize your tree once it begins to bear fruit.
4. Pruning: Your Toka Plum only requires light pruning in winter to get rid of dead branches. You can also do some additional pruning to lighten the branches or maintain a vase shape, but it is not necessary.
