Davidson Plum Plant plant Melbourne Bushfood

Size & Care

Size : Up to 10m high and 2-3m wide in maturity.


Growing conditions : Davidson plum grows comfortably in a wide range of soils but prefers full sun position over semi-shade. Ensure to give them adequate water, if you don’t get enough rainfall in your neck of the woods. Mature trees are drought tolerant and will grow comfortably, no stress. If you grow in pots, use Osmocote premium potting mix and low phosphorus Native Fertilizer. Fertilize at the onset of the fruiting season every season.


Protect your Davidson Plum baby tree from strong winds, and expect it to bloom in Spring and some fruit soon after. 


Harvesting - Davidson Plum fruits between early to mid-summer of its 3-5th year depending on the growing conditions. When the fruits develop a purple blush, it’s time to harvest. They’re susceptible to fruit fly infestation so keep an eye out. 


You can have the fruits ripen off the tree, otherwise allow them to ripen in a food-grade approved ripening space at high humidity and low temperature. They’re fully ripe when the fruit changes to full colour. 


Davidson Plum tree is not frost tolerant, keep them warm.
