Beauty Plum Tree



The Beauty Plum (Prunus salicina ‘Beauty’) is a fruit-bearing tree known for its ornamental features. It blooms in early spring with beautiful white flowers that attract pollinators. The tree produces large, juicy plums with a sweet and tart flavor. It has yellow skin with a red blush. The Beauty Plum is a fast-growing variety that bears fruit at an early age and provides a reliable harvest. While it is self-fertile, planting it with another Japanese Plum variety can result in larger yields. The plums ripen from late June to mid-July and require 200-300 chill hours. It is adaptable to various growing zones and reaches a mature height of 12-15 feet. The Beauty Plum is suitable for both fruit production and ornamental landscaping. It thrives in full sun and requires moderate, consistent moisture. Regular fertilization with a fruit tree fertilizer is recommended. The tree should be planted in well-drained, fertile soil and benefits from mulch. It is a self-fertile tree but has larger harvests when planted with a pollinator. The Beauty Plum is great for small orchards, hedgerows, and provides shade and privacy in the backyard. It is also ideal for grilling, preserves, and enjoying fresh from the tree. The tree typically bears fruit within 2 to 4 years of planting and grows to a mature height of 12-15 feet. It should be planted in well-drained soil with good air circulation. Planting multiple Plum trees that bloom at the same time increases yields and extends the harvest time.
