Italian Plum Tree Pollination
Italian Plum Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Italian Plum Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.
Customer Reviews & Photos
Perfect little tree.
The plum tree arrived with a peach tree and both shipped amazingly well. The plum tree has grown an additional 8 inches since it's arrival and seems to be happy with its new home. Can't wait for next years crop to begin!
The Jury is out
Planted the tree as instructed. I also planted two other trees from different sources which are doing well. This tree is not doing well. All the leaves browned and began to fall off. The tree is still alive and I am giving it TLC hoping to revive it and get new growth next year.
Received two trees in nice condition one lost all its leaves almost immediately but has recovered and is in full bloom. I think they both will give many years of fruit!
