June Plum (Spondias dulcis)
The dwarf June Plum has amazed us with its ability to flower and fruit at a young age. It can be easily maintained in a 12” pot and will reach 3-6’ in height. The fruit appears in pairs and may be eaten green when it’s tart and crunchy in salads or allowed to fully ripen to a golden-yellow when it has a sweet pineapple-mango flavor. This New World plant is deciduous in winter but the fruit holds on the tree for up to 6-8 months after the leaves have dropped.

  1. June plum Review by Craig
    How do you rate this product?

    Purchased in Oct 2017 and arrived safe and sound. 10 months later and it has grown 4x it's original size and is flowering. I hope to have fruit next year when it's more mature. (Posted on 8/30/2018)

  2. Growing Strong Review by Carroll
    How do you rate this product?

    I have eaten the fruit green and immature. Its seasoned and served about the same way green mango is used. The flavor is similar but diffrent to mango. The fully ripe fruit on the other hand flavor is diffrent and more bold mango. The texture is similar,however where mango often has numerous soft fibers running thought it. June plum has numerous hard fibers originating from the seed growing into the fruit. My wife grew up with one in her yard but when she showed me a full grown 40-60ft specimen I knew dwarf cultivars must exist.


    My search for dwarf June Plum led me here. So far it is living up to everything I have read. It grew from a 4" start to flower and set fruit in its first 6 months. The first fruit set did not hold over the winter but that to be expected for a potted tropical plant brought indoors. My now 1 year old June plum has set it second flush of flowers and the fruit is starting to swell. Looking forward to this fruit.
