Ruby Sweet Plum Trees


The Ruby Sweet Plum Tree is a deliciously sweet fruit tree grown in zones 5-9. It grows up to 15 feet tall and produces medium-sized plums.

Ruby Sweet Plum Trees

Ruby Sweet plum trees (Prunus domestica 'Ruby Sweet') are a popular variety of plum tree known for their sweet, juicy, and red-fleshed fruit. They are a cross between the Japanese plum and the European plum, and they were developed by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) in the late 1970s.

Ruby Sweet plum trees are vigorous growers, and they can reach heights of 15-20 feet. They have a spreading habit, and they require full sun and well-drained soil. Ruby Sweet plum trees are self-pollinating, but they will produce a larger crop if cross-pollinated with another plum tree, such as the Stanley plum or the Alderman plum.

Ruby Sweet plums ripen in the early summer, and they are typically harvested in June or July. The plums are medium-sized, about 1.5 inches in diameter, and they have a deep red color. The flesh of the plums is red and firm, and it has a sweet and slightly tart flavor.

Ruby Sweet plums are a delicious and versatile fruit. They can be eaten fresh, used to make pies, jams, and jellies, or dried. Ruby Sweet plums are also a good source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, potassium, and fiber.

Here are some tips for growing Ruby Sweet plum trees:

  • Choose a sunny spot with well-drained soil.
  • Plant the tree in the spring or fall.
  • Water the tree regularly, especially during the first year after planting.
  • Fertilize the tree in the spring and fall with a balanced fertilizer.
  • Mulch around the tree to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.
  • Prune the tree in the late winter or early spring to remove dead or damaged branches and to shape the plant.

Ruby Sweet plum trees are a beautiful and productive addition to any landscape. They are a great choice for home gardeners and commercial growers alike.

Here are some creative ideas for using Ruby Sweet plums:

  • Eat them fresh as a snack or dessert.
  • Use them to make pies, jams, and jellies.
  • Dry them for a healthy snack or to use in baking.
  • Add them to salads, fruit bowls, and yogurt parfaits.
  • Use them to make plum wine, plum liqueur, or plum brandy.
  • Use them to make plum chutney or plum salsa.
  • Use them to make plum sauce or plum glaze for meats and poultry.

No matter how you choose to use them, Ruby Sweet plums are a delicious and versatile fruit that can be enjoyed by everyone.

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.

Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
