I was looking for plum same as I had in Ukraine.
Inna S on Mar 9, 2016
It was recommended by Stark Bros. That alone is enough for me. I have 5 apple and peach trees along with assorted berries and grapes that I purchased from their catalogs and have had only one problem with one peach tree. It was replaced free, with no hassle and is doing well, no questions asked. They are a company I have come to trust and rely on!

Stark Bros. are REAL PROS
We ordered a prune plum tree from Stark Bros. this past fall. They sent a 4 foot tall specimen that I am certain will "take" and grow great. It was pruned perfectly, had nice roots covered in damp wood shavings and appeared to have full vigor. I would recommend Stark Bros. to anyone and will likely order more of these trees and others to grow and live with for many years!

Way to go folks!

Delicious fresh and canned!
The tree bears large crops of good sized plums each year and is a vigorous grower. The fruit keeps well in the frig for eating fresh

Mine died
I took very good care of the 4 trees I bought last spring. 2 of them died. For a 50% success, I'll just go to Lowe's this time. Horrible.
