June Plum Tree Garcinia humilis
A Tropical Fruit Tree, Perfect for the Patio
Though it’s called a June Plum, this fruit has a unique combination of tropical flavors! One bite will have the taste of pineapple and mango, bringing the beach right to your home.
These fruits, also known as Amberella or Golden Apple, are hard to find, so growing your own guarantees you’ll always have a tasty fruit for your table! Plus, this plant is low-maintenance, drought-tolerant, and disease-resistant. No fuss for a healthy harvest required!
Though the large fruit is a key feature, this tree also has beautiful white flowers, too. The leaves turn yellow in the fall, adding the perfect autumnal color for your yard.
The June Plum can be grown in a few southern regions outdoors, but it works best as a patio plant to bring indoors during the colder seasons. Just make sure it’s somewhere with full sun, and watch it thrive!
It’s no wonder this tree with its unique fruit, stunning flowers, and easy maintenance is such a top-seller. Order yours today!
Planting & Care
Planting Directions (potted): This tree will thrive in full sun and can be grown indoors during the winter. Keep your indoor temperatures above 50. Growing in a clay pot can help maintain a healthy root system.
Planting Directions (in ground): June Plum is a fast grower and will need adequate space to stretch out. When planting in rows, place trees 25 feet apart. When planting individual trees, choose a planting location at least 10 feet from other trees and shrubs.
Prepare your hole by digging it three times as wide as the root ball and just as deeply. Gently comb the root ball freeing up any compacted roots and place the tree in the hole, holding it straight. Backfill the hole partially, pressing down gently as you go along and watering to settle the soil. This will also help eliminate any air pockets that may have formed. Once the hole has been completely filled, add a layer of organic mulch around the tree to help conserve soil moisture while keeping competing weeds and grasses away.
Watering: To promote growth in the first season, ensure you are generously watering once to twice a week. When watering, thoroughly saturate the soil.
Fertilizing: June Plums are moderate feeders. Use ¼ teaspoon of fertilizer per gallon of water once a week. In the summer months, increase fertilization to ½ teaspoon of fertilizer per gallon of water once a week. Use a blooming fertilizer or a balanced fertilizer like a 15-15-15 formula.
Pruning: Pruning is not necessary until the tree begins to flower or fruit and after the tree has emerged from dormancy. Fruiting can begin at a young age on this tree. It’s best to allow the central branches on the tree to grow 3 feet or more before letting them branch out. Once the tree has met the desired height, prune to maintain size and form.
June Plum Tree Pollination
June Plum Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional June Plum Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.
