Featuring striking light green skin and greenish-yellow to orange crunchy flesh, the Emerald Beaut Plum Tree (Prunus salicina 'Emerald Beaut') was developed for market and performs like a pro!
Tall, wide-spreading sizeable trees, Emerald Beaut erupts into spring with a fragrant display of white blossoms! The heavy bearing harvests begin late summer, lasting far longer than other stone fruits. They can hang ripe on the tree for two months or more! The ripe fruit continues to sweeten the longer it hangs on the tree, but maintains its crisp, crunchy texture!
Taking on a yellow to orange blush when very ripe, it just doesn't look like a ripe purple Plum, but oh, does it taste like one! Don't let the green fool you - this Japanese Plum will simply blow you away with its sweetness!
These always sell out at local Farmer's Markets. In blind fruit taste tests, Emerald Beaut outperformed its purple relatives! Can't you just imagine this great treat growing in your own yard? Use these plums in baking, drying, canning, preserves, and eaten fresh from the tree!
Requiring a pollinator, you’ll double your pleasure by growing Emerald Beaut alongside a delicious Santa Rosa, Burbank or Burgundy Plum Tree. If you don’t have room for a second tree, head over to our Garden Blog for this high-density planting trick!
A highly ornamental flowering tree with fantastic foliage, the blooms attract pollinators galore! Use as specimen plants and shade in both front and back yard settings!
Park your lawn chair beneath the wide limbs and enjoy watching your fruit develop! Or, simply prune smaller as needed for a convenient harvest and to maintain a size just right for the home orchard setting!
Fruit trees require full sun, so provide at least 6 hours of sunlight per day, favoring the drying power of the morning sun.
Provide ample water for young trees while they are establishing, then reduce watering to moderate, yet consistent moisture during the heat of summer and when fruiting.
Plant in rich, organic, well-drained soil, adding compost and manure to further enrich the area if needed. A thick layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill.
Situate in an area with good air circulation. Prune to keep an open canopy so that both sunlight and airflow reach the interior. Head over to our Garden Blog to read more about Fruit Tree Planting, Fruit Tree Pruning and Fruit Tree Care tips and tricks can be found.
