Early Golden Plum Tree

The Early Golden plum tree, also known as Prunus salicina ‘Early Golden,’ is a prized fruit tree that grows 12-20 feet tall, featuring a rounded crown and dark green foliage that turns yellow and red in fall, producing medium to large golden-yellow plums with juicy, sweet flesh ideal for fresh eating, baking, and preserving, often ripening in late spring to early summer. Thriving in full sun and well-drained slightly acidic soil, this deciduous tree requires regular watering, especially during fruiting, and pruning in late winter or early spring to maintain its shape, air circulation, and fruit production, making it a delightful, low-maintenance addition to gardens or orchards with beautiful blooms and tasty fruit.
