Sweet and delicious Laroda Plum Tree (Prunus salicina 'Laroda') is a Japanese Plum that is perfect for mild winters and warmer climates! The sweet amber flesh is streaked with red, while the dark purple skin is smooth and pleasing to bite into fresh off the tree!

Blooming and ripening early, these gorgeous Plums burst into spring with clouds of scented white blossoms. Followed close behind by swarms of pollinators and lush green leaves! Then the dramatic dark jewels form throughout the tree for you to pluck, still warm from the sun and devour!

Laroda is a fantastic fresh eating Plum that ripens about July or August. These are ideal for baking and preserves and offer up a large harvest for you to try in all your favorite recipes. You will need a pollinator for this deciduous tree since it is not completely self-fertile.

Planting and Application:

Plums look lovely in groupings, that also lend themselves well to wildlife habitat and shade for you! Shipped with their lowest limbs intact, these are fantastic privacy and hide eyesores with blossoms, lush leaves and attractive dark fruit! Create orchards and groves if you have the room, or use as double-duty hedgerows and windbreaks when allowed to reach full size.

These are gorgeous ornamentals too! Set a jeweled fruiting and flowering specimen up in your front yard to accent your home's front plantings or a side garden. When pruned smaller, even the most crowded orchard or established landscape has a sunny spot for these trees! Try high-density planting to fit both the Laroda and its pollinator into a tight squeeze.

  • Deep Dark Purple Smooth Skin
  • Rosy Amber Flesh Streaked Red
  • Wine-Like Sweet Flavor
  • Mid-Season Harvest
  • Requires a Pollinator Partner

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Plum Trees need full sun to do their best, so plant in an area with at least 6 hours of direct light a day in an area with good air circulation that's well-drained and highly enriched. Fruit trees love mulched beds to keep their roots cool and insulated. Provide regular moisture and fertility for best results.

Laroda Plum Trees are a fantastic warm climate tasty treat! Buy this new addition for food security and garden embellishment in one today at NatureHills.com before they're gone!

Recommended Pollinators: Santa Rosa and Wickson Plums
