Spring Satin Plumcot
The spring satin plumcot was transplanted in November 2014. It grew to a height of about seven feet the first year and to my surprise it had about l4 purple plumcots this year (2016). They were medium to large and pleasantly sweet.

So far so good
No blooms the first spring but it's growing like mad. The deer love it and keep it trimmed but that hasn't hurt it by the looks. No sign of disease or bug issues here in North Florida.

Spring Satin Plumcots - best tasting of my 34 fruit trees from Stark
I can't wait to get a couple more Spring Satin Plumcots from Stark! It was full of blossoms this spring, but we did have a late frost and thus only a dozen of the fruits remained and grew. A friend came to visit and we decided we would pick them the next day and enjoy. We cut one in half and both of us were overwhelmed with the sweet and tangy taste, juice dripping down our happy faces! The next day we could hardly wait to come out to pick. To our horror, the birds had picked every one of the others off the tree, leaving juicy, mostly eaten Plumcots on the ground! I will order two more of these Plumcot trees from Stark and not let the birds get them next time.

great tree
This past year with all the good rain. really got this tree growing. I planted it in 2014 and it bloomed this year but no fruit yet. I think next year it will have some nice produce.
Here in south central Texas i thought the heat might be too much, but i keep watering it after the rains pass, and it keeps growing. There dont seem to be any pests that attack the tree, so maintenance is easy. Although this fall i think i will prune some branches for the first time.

Not a single one of these tree trees put out any leafs
Received these three threes. Followed instructions and not a single one of the three trees put put a single leave. They just sat there like a stick for two years until I removed them. $100 gone to waste.
