Plum Tree: Facts and Info on Plum Trees
There are two basic types of plum trees, the European plum and the Japanese plum, from which all other varieties are derived. Plum trees that bear fruit produce small white flowers whereas flowering plum trees which do not produce fruit produce pink clusters of flowers
In order to grow your own fruit in most cases you have to plant two trees to cross pollinate.
Plums, the fruit of the plum tree, are rich in dietary fiber, low in calories and a great source of calcium, potassium and vitamin C.
Once plums are harvested they stop ripening. Unfortunately the plums you find in the grocery store have probably been harvested before they are fully ripe. The sweetest plums are those grown in your own back yard.
Plums are tasty when eaten fresh, but can also be used in jams, jellies and pies. Pick some up at your grocery store today!
Plum Tree Disease
Black knot is a common and often serious fungal disease found on plum trees. The hard black knots form on smaller branches eventually killing the tree if left untreated. Immediate pruning of the diseased branches can help stop the spread of this disease.

How do you tell the difference between a plum tree and a cherry tree?
Plum blossoms do not have a small slit at the end of the petals whereas cherry blossoms do. The bark of the plum tree is darker and has no distinctive horizontal lines like the cherry. Finally the leaf of the plum tree is purple whereas the leaves of a cherry tree are green.
Dried plums are called prunes. Not all varieties of plums can be used for making prunes. The most commom variety of plum used for making prunes is the European plum. Commercially the plums pass through a food dehydrator for 21 hours at 190F in order to remove moisture content of the fruit. However if you want to do this in your own home you can use a regular oven at a low heat setting.
