Plums Falling Off Tree Before Ripe.

Where the drop is not sufficient, plum quality may be poor.

I have a plum tree that produces lots of fruit, but just before they get ripe they fall off. Lack of pollination or brown rot could be the cause. Plum trees are very particular about their pollinators.

They are generally not self-fruitful meaning they need a different plum and often a specific variety for pollination and fruit development. Fruit flies, apple maggots, caterpillars and plum curculio damage the plums, which eventually drop from the tree. Plums damaged by insects are usually scarred or rotted and the causes are easily.

Jun 27, One of the most common causes of plum tree problems is the lack of a co-pollinator. Plums are not self-fruitful and need another of the same species nearby for pollen transfer. This is done with bees, moths and other pollinator’s help. Pruning at the wrong time removes the buds necessary for flower and then bushgrind.clubted Reading Time: 3 mins. Sep 21, The European viral disease called Sharka first entered the U.S. in the late s and causes plums and other stone fruit to shrivel and fall.

Plum trees drop fruit naturally in two major cycles.

Natural Drops. Plum trees drop fruit naturally in two major cycles.

Aug 23, The plums fall off the tree when they are still green and hard, so that we only get a few (maybe ) that make it to ripeness. We haven't been in the habit of watering, since we live in a fairly rainy area on the coast of Nova Scotia (even when it's not actually raining, it's often foggy).

Our neighbours have a similar tree, and they seem to. The galls are caused by a bacterial disease, and plums are quite susceptible. Control is accomplished by pruning off infected stems during the winter, before spores are spread in early April.
