Why Elephant Heart Plum Trees?
Delivering sweet, juicy heart-shaped plums each fall, the Elephant Heart Plum Tree lives up to its name, giving you a huge bounty of large plums that are smooth and delicious right off the branches.
A Japanese variety, the Elephant Heart Plum blooms and ripens earlier than its European counterparts. They are not generally self-pollinated and can be tricky to grow in areas with late frosts, but are superb for fresh eating. Plus, they are the favored selection for fresh eating varieties because they're rounder and firmer than similar varieties.
You'll get a consistent, heavy crop of sweet plums from this reliable and hardy producer. With more vigorous and disease-resistant blooms that give way to fresh, home-grown fruit, the Elephant Heart Plum is a favorite for home gardeners, from novices to experts.

Elephant Heart Plum Tree Pollination
Elephant Heart Plum Trees are not self-fertile. You will need to plant another variety to achieve fruiting. Below are the most effective pollinators we have chosen for your area...
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your tree 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 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 tree only requires light pruning in winter to get rid of dead or damaged branches. You can also do some additional pruning to lighten the branches or maintain a vase shape, but it is not necessary.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
