Vanier Plum Tree


The Vanier plum tree is a vigorous clingstone Japanese plum tree which produces medium-large round plums with a deep red flush. In fact this tree is very productive and bears sweet/tart, juicy, tangy fruit. Moreover, they are excellent for making jams and jellies. However since this tree tends to overcrop, you will need to thin the branches in order to get good-sized fruit. The Vanier plum tree is a great choice for both home and commercial growers because it is a hardy (zone 5) and reliable tree that is easy to maintain.

General Tree Height/Caliper: Most of our fruit trees (apple, peach, apricot, plum, pear, nectarine, quince, and cherry) are grafted/budded and are 4-6' tall with a caliper/diameter of about 1/4-3/4". Most have more than 5' height and 1/2" diameter. The other trees are seedlings, such as pawpaw, mulberry, persimmon, shade, berry, and flowering trees which range from 18-36" tall.

A rootstock primarily controls a tree's size and how early it bears fruit. Learn more about our specific rootstocks.
