Introduce the delectable and ornamental Elephant Heart Plum tree to your garden for both its visual appeal and fruit-bearing capabilities. This deciduous tree is an excellent addition to small and medium-sized yards, patios, and can even thrive in larger containers.

The Elephant Heart Plum, distinguished by its unique heart-shaped fruit, is a delight to both the eye and the palate. The plums are large, with a deep, rich red to purple skin and a vibrant red flesh. They are known for their juicy, sweet, and slightly tangy flavor, making them a favorite for fresh eating, preserves, and baking. The tree blooms in the spring with lovely white flowers, adding a delicate and fragrant touch to your garden.

Every time a plant is watered, the soil should be thoroughly saturated to a depth of at least 2 to 3 feet and at least as wide as a tree well. Very slow and deep watering is always recommended. During periods of extreme heat, we advise at least 1 additional time per week of watering for all varieties. For periods of heavy rain (1/2” or more) adjust accordingly by possibly skipping a watering session for that time.
