This is one of our favorite soft mast species that for some reason isn’t very well known among gamekeepers, and we’d like to change that.

Mexican plum will thrive just about anywhere from hilly sites to bottomlands, where it quickly becomes a small tree that drop loads of fruit from late summer on into early fall. Because the fruits mature at such a critical time period when there isn’t much food around, wildlife flock to them and take advantage of all the vitamins, minerals, and even moisture plums offer. 

Even better, Mexican plums fit right in along tight spaces like roads, pipelines, clearcuts, or powerline edges, and stretch out just enough to get the sun they need to produce bountiful crops. Even after taller trees have outcompeted Mexican plum, they still manage to produce plenty of fruit. 

Unlike Chickasaw plums, these are rather tart, and make one of the best jellies you’ve ever tasted. Definitely trust us on this unsung winner and give it a shot…we can assure you’ll be mucho impresso.

Zone: 6 - 9
Soil pH: 4.5 - 7.0.
Wildlife Value: Excellent.
Site Preference: Full sun.
Fruit Maturity Date: Late Summer
Fruit: Small to medium sized reddish yellow skin. Can be sweet or tart in flavor. Very attractive to wildlife.

Zone 6-9

Nicely packaged and good looking specimens

I received 5 Mexican Plum starts and they came nice and moist, well packaged and with an instruction sheet. As it is December, I put the starts in soil for now and am following the directions until spring then will plant. I forsee no issues, they are great looking specimens and packed with care.

Dancing Senorita

When a Mexican Plum is blooming her delicate star shaped blossoms remind me of a flower in the hair of a dancing Senorita. With time her trunk will begin to spiral in response to her spinning dance.
