June Plum Tree Pollination
June Plum Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional June Plum Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.
Planting & Care
The June Plum (Spondias dulcis) has the amazing ability to flower and fruit at a young age. It can be easily maintained, will reach a mature height of 30-40 feet and accessible to USDA growing zones 4-11 (potted) / 9-11 (outdoors). The fruit on the June Plum will grow in pairs and has fruit that starts green ripening to a golden-yellow. The full to partial sun loving plant is deciduous in winter but the fruit holds on the tree for up to 6-8 months after the leaves have dropped.
Planting Directions (potted): This tree adapts to full sun, southern exposure and can be grown indoors during the winter. Keep your indoor temperatures above 50, cooler temperatures can lead to root disease if grown in containers. Growing in a clay pot can maintain a healthy root system.
Planting Directions (in ground): June Plum is fast grower and will need adequate space to stretch out. Planting in rows 25 feet apart. Planting individual trees choose a planting location at least 10 feet from other trees and shrubs.
1) Prepare your hole by digging it three times as wide as the root ball and just as deeply.
2) Gently comb the root ball freeing up any compacted roots and place the tree in the hole, holding it straight.
3) Backfill the hole partially, pressing down gently as you go along and watering to settle the soil. This will also help eliminate any air pockets that may have formed.
4) Once the hole has been completely filled, add a layer of organic mulch around the tree to help conserve soil moisture while keeping competing weeds and grasses away.
Watering: To promote growth in the first season ensure you are generously watering once to twice a week. When watering, thoroughly saturate the soil.
Fertilizing: June Plums are moderate feeders, use ¼ teaspoon of fertilizer per gallon of water once a week. In the summer months, increase fertilization to ½ teaspoon of fertilizer per gallon of water once a week. Use a blooming fertilizer or a balanced fertilizer like a 15-15-15 formula.
Pruning: Pruning is not necessary until the tree begins to flower or fruit and after the tree has emerged from dormancy. Fruiting can begin at a young age on this tree. It’s best to allow the central branches on the tree to grow 3 feet or more before letting them branch out. Once the tree has met the desired height, prune to maintain size and form.
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.

June Plum Tree
I purchased 2 June Plum trees. One of the tree had a broken leader. I reported the damage plant on day of receipt and a replacement was approved the same day. Both the original shipment and the replacement plant was very prompt. While the plant did drop branches on arrival, new branches and leaves quickly emerge. Plants were healthy.
