Customer Reviews & Photos
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.
A peach of a plum tree
Phenomenal tree! It arrived much larger than expected and only a day after I ordered it like some sort of arboreal miracle. It's currently happily planted in the sun soaking up a good hard watering.
So Far So Good
The tree was wilted when it arrived but after planting and being watered heavily every day for a couple of weeks it gradually recovered. Some leaves turned yellow but eventually colored up again without dropping. Let's see how it does next year. Still grateful this was available when my usual supplier's Toka Plum crop failed.
Arrived beautifully packaged and looks healthy from what I can tell. Planted it outside with plenty of room to grow. And am hoping to see some beautiful blooming in years to come!
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.
