The delicious, delectable Plum is probably the easiest of all the stone fruits to grow, with less pest and disease problems and a more tolerant nature than, for example, a Peach or Apricot. In New Zealand the most popular Plums grown are Japanese as these tend to have the big fat fleshy fruit that we all love. We do still grow some European varieties and though they have smaller less attractive fruit they are still worthy of consideration for flavour. There are also hybrids of Japanese and European trees on offer plus double grafted trees. In short, a Plum to suit everyone! Some Plums are self fertile but most are planted with a Pollinator to ensure good fruit production - check out our Pollinator Guide here
