5 Factors Affecting Fruit Set

Japanese plums require cross-pollination. The cross-pollinator and the main cultivar must have overlapping flowering periods. Keep in mind that the flowering period can shift depending on winter and spring temperatures. Cultivars with a high chill requirement are more prone to shifting after a warm winter than cultivars with a low chill requirement. Combine cultivars with similar chill requirements for the best results.
