The Au Rosa Plum Tree is a major breakthrough in disease resistance in plum trees. It was created by Auburn University, and showed complete resistance to all important plum diseases. As well it produces heavy crops of plums almost as soon as you plant it, and these are wonderful, tasty plums – big and juicy with red skin and yellow flesh. This tree has white flowers and dark green leaves and grows to about 15 feet tall, with harvest of 50 pounds within a few years, rising to 100 pounds in maturity. It is fully self-fertile, so it’s ideal if you only have room for one tree.
- Mature size is 12-15 ft tall/8-10 ft wide
- Hardy in zones 5-8
- Full Sun
Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.
We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
