Sometimes the hardest working plants in your garden aren’t the superstars. Toka Plum Tree (Prunus ‘Toka’) is one of those plants. Oh, it’s a great plum tree that has been around for a very long time – since 1911 to be exact – and you will love the super-sweet fruit it gives you. (The fruit is amazing. It is nicknamed is the ‘bubblegum plum’ because it has a distinct fragrance and taste that is so much like candy that your mouth will be watering before you take a bite.) But that isn’t the reason you’ll want to plant Toka in your home orchard this year.
You’ll want to plant it because Toka is prized for its ability to produce tons of pollen each year and give you a super-abundant harvest from all of the other plum trees in your garden! It is self-fertile, so it doesn’t require another tree to set fruit. If this is the only tree you have room for, you won’t be disappointed, but boy, will it make any other plum trees sing.
In addition to the sweet fruit, this vase-shaped tree also gives you scads of creamy, white flowers in an unforgettable spring show. It will grow just about anywhere, in full sun to part shade, and laughs at cold winters.
Plan to put at least one of these easy-to-grow fruit trees in your garden this year and reap the benefits of Toka Plum Tree for years to come!
