Growing Great In Zone 9
Very pleased with all trees. They are growing nicely in second and branching for upcoming fruit bearing. Expect a small third year crop. Will thin heavily to avoid hampering vigor and growth. Prune in fall and use a regular fertilization and pest control. Have 26 Stark fruit trees in my backyard garden

Great Customer Service
StarkBro"s is a great company to do business with. I rate them as a top notice company in customer service. As for the Startking Delicious Plum trees that I received they came fast and in great condition. If one has any questions or problems with any of the products from StarkBro's just call them. They have always be very helpful to me. I will do business with them again.

Growing well
I purchased the Starking Delicious Plum as well as another variety late last spring. They were both the smallest size Stark sells but they leafed out soon after planting last year and have leafed out beautifully again this spring. I'm sure I am still several years from the time the trees will be mature enough to fruit but I am looking forward to that time.

So far so good
We are now in the second season for this tree. It has flowered beautifully and leafed out fully to the end of the branches. The branching pattern is very even and attractive. Still too young for any crop, although there are about 10 developing fruit on the tree. We were very conscientious about watering last year and will reduce the water somewhat this year. The tree seems to be thriving.

Sweet--great producer
The tree is quite hardy, bears heavily in Utah, and is a sweet, versatile plum. Caution: My 25 year old tree was killed by borers. Though it seemed to be resistant, the borers finally killed it--I should have given that problem more attention early on. I am now growing a replacement--same tree.

Starking Delicious Plum
This is my second time purchasing this tree due to change of residence. The plum is extremely high quality and similar to the plums offered in grocery stores. I have customers asking when these plums will be ready for sale because they are liked by so many people.
