Dwarf Burbank Plum
A Favorite of Commercial Growers
The Burbank Plum Tree is a favorite of commercial growers because it produces more fruit than the average plum tree.
This plum tree is one of a variety of “Japanese” plum trees that were introduced into the United States 200 years ago. It immediately became a favorite among commercial growers because the Burbank Plum tree grows branches that have more “forks” in them than the average plum tree.
Simply put, more forks means more branches, which means more fruit!
The Burbank plum will grow well in growing regions where there is little danger of frost. This variety of plum tree is adaptable to a wide variety of soil conditions. It loves full sun and is very drought tolerant.
It should be cross-pollinated, and your Burbank Plum tree will produce a maximum fruit yield when planted with another variety of Japanese plum tree such as the Santa Rosa Plum Tree.
Your Burbank Plum Tree will grow up to 15-25 feet wide and 10-15 feet tall. Once the tree matures, it will produce a purplish-red plum with a sweet yellow pulp, which will be ready to harvest in late summer.
Despite the larger size of the tree, the lower branches often sweep towards the ground, providing tasty fruit snacks that are easily within reach of adults and children alike.
The Burbank Plum is delicious when eaten fresh, but also perfect for drying, baking, and preserving.
