Ordering plants has concluded for the season. The selection on our website is what is overwintered at the nursery. Our Spring 2024 plant catalog will be available later this winter.

This variety of Japanese plum produces exceptionally large, red-fleshed fruit. Vigorous producer that is partially self-fertile but will yield more if cross pollinated with another Japanese plum. Elephant Heart tends to ripen later than other varieties, extending your plum harvest season into September.
