Good things come in small packages and the Geopride Plumcot Tree (Prunus x 'Geo Pride') is a flavorful combination of both an apricot and a plum flavor! Beautiful as it is productive, Geopride is the best of both fruit tree worlds!
With a smooth golden yellow and reddish-purple mottled skin and a golden yellow flesh! The amazing flavor is a perfect blend of a plum and apricot with a crisp texture.
Lovely leaves that are glossy and lush foliage fill out this petite tree throughout the summer. The perfect backdrop for the juicy gems that will follow soon! With a mid-season harvest, you’ll enjoy a good harvest of medium-sized fruit, from this smaller tree.
Fragrant white blooms appear in spring as soon will follow the flocks of bees and butterflies! A small-statured tree, these are very ornamental throughout the entire year!
A smaller tree like this is a fantastic edible landscaping tree and versatile tree for tucking into both front and rear gardens, in landscapes of all sizes! Able to be pruned smaller yet to tuck into Kitchen and Vegetable gardens as well as Balcony and Patio garden beds!
Prune small for container gardening on your porch or patio while also planting around the yard as a specimen or focal point tree that’s highly ornamental! The beautiful blooms and foliage accent any garden bed and anchor foundation plantings.
Line your property with a hedgerow of other Plumcots for maximum pollination. Creating a lovely row for privacy or screening, and we’re certain that you and your neighbors won’t mind the view!
The delectable fruit is fantastic for fresh eating, grilled or in fresh fruit salads! These are healthy snacks and hold their shape when cooked or baked. Create jams or jelly or cook into tarts and pastries that are delicious unique plum-apricot flavors.
Fruit trees require full sun for the most vigorous growth and best harvest. For best results, provide at least 6 hours of sunlight per day, favoring the drying power of the morning sun. Needing as low as 400 hours of chill, these dark-red skinned fruits are hardy in USDA growing zones 6 through 9.
Provide ample water for your young tree while it becomes established, not allowing it to dry out between waterings. Then reduce your watering to moderate, yet consistent moisture during the heat of summer and when fruiting. It’s best to protect your investment by providing supplemental watering in times of need.
Situate in an area that is protected from frost pockets and with good air circulation. Prune to keep an open canopy so that both sunlight and airflow reach the interior.

Plant your tree in rich, organically enhanced, well-drained soil, adding compost and manure to further enrich the soil. A thick layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill.
