Product Highlights:

Abundant Fruit Production: The AU Homeside Plum Tree consistently yields a bounty of sweet, succulent plums. These plums are perfect for fresh snacking, baking, preserving, or crafting delicious jams and jellies. Expect a rich harvest year after year.

Low-Chill Variety: As a low-chill plum tree, it thrives in regions with mild winters. Its adaptability to areas with limited chilling hours extends its appeal to a wide range of climates.

Cold-Hardy and Resilient: The AU Homeside Plum Tree is renowned for its adaptability, withstanding diverse weather conditions. This resilience makes it a dependable choice for growers in various regions.

Ornamental Beauty: Beyond its fruit-bearing prowess, this tree graces your garden or orchard with its beautiful spring blossoms and lush green foliage. It enhances the aesthetic allure of your outdoor space.

Growing Information:

Hardiness Zone: The AU Homeside Plum Tree is well-suited for USDA hardiness zones 5 to 9, making it adaptable to diverse winter conditions.

Sunlight: Ensure your plum tree is planted in a sunny location, receiving full sun. At least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily is vital for robust growth and prolific fruit production.

Soil Requirements: Plum trees thrive in well-drained, fertile soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH. Good drainage is crucial to prevent waterlogged roots. Enhance soil quality by adding organic matter like compost or aged manure.

Planting: Spring is the ideal time to plant your AU Homeside Plum Tree when it's dormant. Choose a location with good drainage and adequate space for the tree's growth. Dig a wide hole to comfortably accommodate the root system.

Watering: Young plum trees require consistent moisture to establish strong roots. Water deeply and consistently, especially during the growing season. As the tree matures, it becomes more drought-tolerant but still benefits from regular watering during dry spells.

Pruning: Prune your plum tree in late winter or early spring to remove dead or diseased branches, maintain a balanced canopy, and promote air circulation and sunlight penetration. Proper pruning reduces the risk of fungal diseases.

Fertilization: Fertilize your AU Homeside Plum Tree annually in early spring with a balanced fertilizer. Follow the recommended dosage on the fertilizer package to ensure proper nutrient availability.

Pest and Disease Control: Monitor your plum tree for common pests like aphids and plum curculio and apply appropriate pest control measures when needed. Implement good sanitation practices and consider using fungicides for disease prevention and management.

Fruit Description:

The AU Homeside Plum Tree bears medium-sized plums with deep purple skin and juicy, sweet, and flavorful flesh. These plums are perfect for fresh eating and a wide range of culinary uses.

Chill Hour Requirements:

The AU Homeside Plum Tree typically requires approximately 300-500 chill hours. Chill hours refer to the number of hours of cold temperatures (usually below 45°F or 7°C) during the winter. Adequate chill hours are necessary for breaking dormancy and fruit production.

Pollination:

The AU Homeside Plum Tree is partially self-fertile, meaning it can produce fruit without a pollination partner. However, for optimal fruit production and larger yields, having another plum tree nearby for cross-pollination is recommended.

Elevate your garden or orchard with the exquisite fruit and ornamental beauty of the AU Homeside Plum Tree. It's an excellent choice for both seasoned orchardists and newcomers to fruit tree cultivation, thanks to its reliable yield and adaptability to various climates. Savor the sweet, juicy plums it provides and enjoy the natural elegance it adds to your outdoor space.
