Plum (Prunus salicina Golden Japan) is a deciduous fruit tree that is native to China and Japan. It is a small to medium-sized tree, reaching up to 15-20 feet in height with a similar spread. The tree produces beautiful white or pinkish flowers in early spring, which are followed by the fruits in late summer.

The Golden Japan plum has a round, medium-sized fruit with a smooth, golden-yellow skin. The flesh is juicy and sweet with a slight tartness, and has a yellow color. The fruit is ideal for eating fresh, but can also be used for making jams, jellies, and other preserves.

The Golden Japan plum tree prefers full sun and well-drained soil, and is relatively easy to grow. It is also self-fertile, which means that a single tree can produce fruit without the need for another tree for cross-pollination. The tree is hardy in USDA zones 5-9, and can tolerate temperatures as low as -10°F.

Overall, the Golden Japan plum is a beautiful and delicious fruit tree that can be enjoyed by both novice and experienced gardeners. Its sweet and juicy fruit, coupled with its ease of growth, make it a great addition to any backyard orchard or fruit garden.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
