Pollinator required to bear fruit

Really does taste like bubblegum!

Also called Toka Plum

The kids will surely eat their fruit when you slice up some Bubblegum Plums. The tree has a very attractive vase shape, is easy-maintenance and produces heavy yields of medium-to-large plums. The fruit has red skin with bronze overtones and juicy yellow flesh that smells and tastes just like candy-store bubblegum—they’ll get eaten as fast as you can pick ’em!

Extremely cold-hardy; tolerant of temperatures as low as -50ºF. Clingstone. Originated in South Dakota in 1911. Ripens in July. Pollinator required to bear fruit.

    I wish I could add pictures! Beautiful tree! It has literally doubled its size in just 2 months and has a beautiful shape. Highly recommended.

    Write your review here. It must be at least 50 characters long. Consider whether you would recommend this product and what you like or dislike about it.planted fall of 2017, spring 2020 is first year to fruit.Great growth every year. Dont remember height that it was at when i received planted it (maybe 2 1/2 ft), but its over 10 feet tall now.Tree was covered with blossoms this year but two late frosts took its toll. Now im looking at maybe 20-30 plums per tree as of mid may.

    Planted this tree in June 2019 and it’s flowering in March 2020. It’s not even a year old yet. I’m going to leave a few flowers to see if I’ll get fruit.

  4. Brenda N/A

    Grown a foot and a half since planting, very nice looking and a promising start

  5. Walter Ralls

    Planted July 2018. Survived a cold wet winter. Had one plum this year, but the tree has taken off like other plums, but is still alive and kicking. Perhaps next year I will see a lot of new growth.

  6. Mary Santello

    I am very happy with my bubble gum plum tree. I planted it last year and it is growing nicely.It was full of blossoms but took them off until it grows bigger.I would recommend this tree.

  7. Robin Pritchard

    Survuved winter. Growing well. Had many leaves and some blossoms this spring.

  8. Kevin Hock

    Came back thriving after planting bare root in previous spring, despite harsh winter weather in zone 4/5. Unlike a Santa Rosa Plum I planted at same time, no branches were dead after winter.

  9. Jeri Bruckelmyer

    Doing good !!! I hope to be getting fruit soon , maybe next year

  10. Judy Vincent

    I purchased one of each because Stark Brother’s recommended for best pollination. Beautiful, green foliage. They have been in the ground for alittle over two years and not a single plum. A few flowers but no plums. Will give them 1 more year and then they are gone if they don’t produce. My garden space is too valuable to waste on plants that don’t produce any fruit.
