Plum Trees - MorrisPrunus salicina x cerasifera
USDA Hardiness Zones: 5-8
The best eating plums are firm and sweet, and biting through a shiny red skin into a fruit that is still warm from the sun, plucked from a tree outside your door, is the exact experience you will have with the Morris Plum. The Morris plum tree grows some of the most beautiful plums around. The smooth, glossy deep-red skin and the dark red flesh has the perfect texture and a sweet tanginess everyone loves. This variety was developed to store well for many weeks in the fridge. This variety is ideal for both warm and cooler parts of the country, and it delivers a heavy bounty of beautiful fruit within just a few years of planting. At maturity, it can reach a height of 18 to 20 feet. Fruit ripens in the first weeks of June. Other fruit trees take years of careful pruning to carry a significant crop. Not this fast-growing tree, which shoots up, blooms and fruits almost as soon as you plant it in the ground. For eating fresh, baking or for preserves, this is a wonderful all-round plum everyone in your family will enjoy.

How to Plant
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
