Beautiful tree
I purchased a Shiro plum from Stark Bros last Spring to plant on my hill of fruit trees as a pollinator to another type of plum tree. It came in the mail in great condition. Once planted, it began to leaf out within days, and grew approximately 12 inches in height the first summer. I just checked on it again, hoping it had made it through the winter alright, and it is thriving - loaded with fat, green buds. I think this is going to be a great plum tree! I've ordered fruit trees online elsewhere, and this is the ONLY place I will shop from now on. Excellent quality! Five stars.
