The Bruce Plum Tree is a popular classic variety of plum developed for the west and south, where hot dry summers come early and can shrivel late-ripening fruit crops. It is ready for harvest by mid-June, or even earlier, and it doesn’t need a lot of winter chill to bloom well. The big plums have a bright red skin and red-orange flesh that is tasty, with a perfect balance of sweet and tart. It is ideal for eating fresh, but also for baking and preserves. This fast-growing tree will be giving you big crops within just a few years.

  • Reliable crop of delicious red-skinned and orange fleshed plums
  • Harvest in June for an early crop
  • Ideal tree for areas with hot, dry summers
  • Excellent fresh and for baking and preserves as well
  • Big harvest every year because bloom time avoids spring frosts

The Bruce Plum Tree should be planted in full sun for a good crop, and it grows in any well-drained soil, including alkaline soils and sandy soils as well. It has good disease resistance, and pests are rarely serious. No complex pruning is needed – just shorten back long shoots – and it soon reaches full size. Plant a second similar variety for cross-pollination, such as ‘Morris’, ‘Burbank’ or ‘Methley’.
