Wildlife Plum Tree

Alternative Views:

The Chickasaw plum pollinator tree sheds its pollen over a long period of time, therefore being a certain pollinator for other plum tree cultivars. The Chickasaw plum tree is a native plum to America and was first discovered by William Bartram growing throughout the southern states and harvested for eating by early American Indian tribes, in his book, Travels, in 1773. Most wildlife plum growers plant two separate cultivars for cross-pollination of their trees, unless wild plum trees are growing nearby.

Wildlife Chickasaw Plum Tree

It is not unusual for plum trees to bear the first year, but the immature fruit should be removed early, so that the growth can go into the tree, not the fruit. The growth of a plum tree literally stops expanding, when fruit is on the tree and does not resume until all the fruit has been removed from the tree. Most boys and girls who grow up in the deep South remember wild plum trees, Prunus americana, (Chickasaw plum), that was found growing out on the country dirt roads near ditches or growing on fence rows bordering fields of agricultural crops, like moderate to well-drained soils and they bloom from March to May. The Wildlife Plum Trees produce plum fruit in June through August and deer, quail, grouse, and pheasant love to eat the plum fruit.

A small Wildlife Plum Tree or large shrub, flowers in April-May, matures in late summer, grows along fence rows, edge of woods, stream banks and edge of swamps and seems to prefer moist or wet soils but will grow in waste places. Wildlife Plum Trees grow MO-southern NE, north TX and LA, east to FL, NJ to IL. A small Wildlife Plum Tree grows to 20 ft, covered with Profuse white flowers before leaves appear in Spring, followed by yellow to red edible fruits, and the Wildlife Plum Trees spreads by suckers to form clumps. Most older hunters remember growing up in the Spring to visit the plum tree thicket, eating a few gold, dead ripe, sweet plums and carrying several bucketfuls back to the kitchen, where tasty preserves and jellies were cooked down for storing in mason jars for winter treats and spreads on hot buttered biscuits.
