Plums have a reputation as one of the easiest fruit trees to include in your home orchard. This special cultivar makes it even easier to enjoy homegrown fruit with family and friends.

Showy Simka Plum (Prunus x 'Simka') flowers a bit later than others, to up your chances of avoiding heart-crushing late winter frosts. It's also got relatively low chill hour requirements, so more people across a wider range of USDA Hardiness Zones can reliably harvest great-tasting crops, especially where winter temperatures get chilly.

Red-purple skin stays snappy, even when tree-ripe. You'll notice that distinctive waxy, glaucous bloom, which protects the fruit and makes it gleam in the sunlight.

Simka plums are freestone, which makes for easy preparation in homemade preserves and desserts. Of course, you'll want to get your fill of firm, fresh Simka Plums, too!

Juicy golden flesh is filled with natural fruit sugars. There is simply no comparison between store-bought plums and the sweetness of those you grow yourself!

With a spreading habit and lovely white springtime blooms, Simka Plum doubles as a hard-working ornamental tree. Add the large, heart-shaped leaves...and you'll also enjoy the shade!

Edible Gardening is a huge design trend among younger homeowners. But everyone will appreciate the food security that comes with growing your own supply of delicious fresh fruit!

Simka Plum is a self-pollinating hybrid Japanese variety, so you'll get fruit from only one tree. However, if you also order Elephant Heart Japanese Plum trees, they'll boost each other's production a lot.

Plums grow best in full sun with well-drained, loamy soils. Ensure your tree gets consistent moisture and has good air circulation to keep it happy, healthy and loaded with blooms and fruit.

Don't delay on your order for Simka Plum. This red-hot backyard orchard trend is in full swing, and our inventory flies out of the nursery as fast as we can dig, prep and ship them in our sturdy boxes!
