#ProPlantTips for CarePlum trees need full sun, with at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. Proper air circulation is also important. Please don’t plant too close to structures.
They grow best in well-drained soil that has been amended with compost. Plant in a large mound or raised bed if poor drainage is suspected.
Provide moderate amounts of water on a regular basis. Mulch your tree to 3 to 4 inches deep to 3 feet outside of the canopy.
Thin out heavy crops to increase the size of mature fruit. Spacing is about one fruit per 6 inches.
In late winter, shape your fruit tree to correct crossing branches. Develop three main scaffold limbs to carry the weight of the harvest.
Keep your tree smaller with summer pruning for size control. Tip prune the season’s new growth by a third. You’ll have an easier harvest, and encourage next year’s fruiting wood.
There is a bit of a mystery regarding Howard Miracle Plum. It was widely reported that this is a hybrid cross between two unlikely parents. The historical Green Gage is a European Plum, and beloved Satsuma is an Asian Plum.
But these days, it’s assumed the green parent was actually a green Asian Plum. Oh well, it’s a good story and the taste is still out-of-this-world!
