toka hybrid plum

Prunus ‘Toka’

Toka hybrid plum trees
Toka plum is a hybrid cross between the American Plum (Prunus americana) and Japanese plum (Prunus salicina). This upright vase shaped plum tree is an excellent pollinator – the fragrant white petaled blooms produce a lot of pollen each season. This is followed by a good yield of medium sized purple red plums.

Toka is a self-pollinating hybrid that can be paired with a pollinating plum to increase the yield.

Height: 15′ – 20′

Width: 15′ – 20′

Exposure: Full sun.

Watering and soil: Moist, well drained rich soil. Apply an even layer of mulch over the soil avoiding it piling up the trunk in ‘volcano’ fashion.

Fertilizer: Use a well balanced fertilizer or slow release formula.

Pruning: It is especially important to train plum trees when young. With careful pruning at their early stages, they will require only light maintenance pruning as they mature.

When the tree is about two years old reduce to three or four well-spaced branches to maintain an open sun filled structure. Good air circulation around the branches is particularly important.
