If in the market for a plum that is deep red in color with flesh that is mellow and sweet, then click on 'add to cart' from the Burgundy plum page, a plum that will give you a fresh approach to some of the older varieties that have been around so long. Santa Rosa and Satsuma plums are still great, the Burgundy just the new kid on the block wanting its few minutes of fame. The fruit is medium sized but the pit is small...still hungry after one, eat another. Skin is reddish purple. The Burgundy plum is self fertile, so no need for another tree, especially important if space is at a premium. This plum variety only needs 250 to 350 chill hours, so a good choice for mild winter areas, yet it will take some cold. Ripens early July, but keeps well on tree till mid August. Use fruit for fresh eating, cooking, drying and jams & jellies. Shipped as a potted five gallon tree in its original soil and container.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a good use for my plums after harvest?
Enjoy your home grown fruit for fresh eating, cooking, drying, jams and jellies.

Something you gotta try, as suggested by one of my fruit tree suppliers, L.E. Cooke Company from Visalia California... “Plant 3 or 4 trees in the space of 1. Fruit trees are planted for the purpose of harvesting the reward of incredibly delicious tree ripened fruit. Why not extend this pleasure from 2-3 weeks to 10 to 12 weeks?” How is that done you ask? Read further…
The trees should be planted in a triangle (or box for 4) 24-30 inches apart and at a slight outward angle. The center limbs are pruned so that crossing limbs are removed. Otherwise, normal care is all that is necessary.

Can you give me suggestions on which varieties to choose that would be best for combining into a limited space?
Pick a combination of varieties that are similar in growth habit and foliage texture. Varieties can be selected for mild winter areas, traditional fruit growing areas, mountains or deserts. Why not have fruit all summer long?

For example?
Apples….red, green and yellow, or early, mid and late season. Apricots...June, July and August ripening. Cherries...early June ripening, mid June ripening and a sweet pollinator. Plums...red meat, purple meat and yellow meat.... I think you get the picture. Just have fun!
