  Fruit Trees: Plums and Prunes                                                

All plum varieties benefit from cross-pollination, even those that are self-fruitful. Japanese plums require a Japanese variety for cross-pollination; European varieties need European pollinators.

Plum Blossom Chart

Japanese plums perform best when two or more varieties are planted. And, while European types are partially self-fertile, they always yield better with two or more varieties. Japanese, European plums and prunes can cross pollinate but the bloom times are usually earlier for the Japanese varieties.
