Sometimes the hardest working plants in your garden aren't the superstars. Toka Plum Tree (Prunus 'Toka') is one of those plants. Oh, it's a great plum tree that has been around since 1911, and you will love the super-sweet fruit it gives you. But that isn't the reason you'll want to plant Toka in your home orchard this year!

The fruit is amazing! Nicknamed the 'Bubblegum Plum' because of its distinct fragrance and taste! So much like candy that your mouth will be watering before you take a bite. But you'll really want to plant it because Toka is prized for its ability to produce tons of pollen each year and pollinate all other Plum Trees in your orchard! It's self-fertile, so it doesn't require another tree to set fruit, but once you taste it, you'll change your mind.

In addition to the sweet fruit, this vase-shaped tree also gives you scads of creamy, white flowers in an unforgettable spring show! Pollinators galore stop by for the bountiful pollen and nectar!

Planting and Application:

Fantastic specimens or accent trees in your front yard, where everyone will want a better look at the white blossoms and the radiant apricot and rosy reddish-pinkish-plum blushed fruit in the late summer to early autumn! Great shade over garden beds and pretty as a picture in back yard landscaping!

Toka are bushy and densely growing enough for privacy. Keep the lower limbs intact and plant liner orchards with other Plum Trees for a hedgerow and windbreak of mixed fruit for an extended and varied harvest that also hides an eyesore!

  • Beautiful Spring Flowers
  • Great Vase Shape
