My husband loves plums "the big blue ones" he said. Okay, I ordered Big Blue. The tree is doing well, and flowered this year.

Looking for a dwarf, self pollinating fruit tree to fit in my flower bed and thought I would give this a try. We have a ton of other fruit trees but no plums.

I would like to plant a Big Blue Plum on a site that I am removing an sour cherry tree that grew from below the graft. It has scab or blight . Will this infect the new plum ?
Jerry E on Mar 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If the tree you are removing had a fungal or bacterial issue, it may not technically "spread" to your new plum tree, but the potential causes may still exist in the environment. Poorly drained sites and humid locations are favorable for disease issues. Proper identification of the disease and using control methods (spraying, pruning, destroying debris, maintaining a clean growing site, etc.) will help reduce the risk of disease issues in new trees.
Does this tree have green or purple leaves? Thanks!
Layne N on Apr 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is a green-leaf plum variety.

Stark Brothers are the Best
I've bought Stark Brothers trees since 1977 and I can say without any uncertainty that they provide the best fruit tree products offered for sale in the USA. I have always gotten what I've ordered very quickly and at a very fair price.
