Flavor King Pluot Tree Information and Care

The Flavor King Pluot is often kept small in the home orchard, about 10 feet tall and wide. However, they can grow as tall as 20 feet tall and wide.  Plant in full sun and soil that drains well. Space pluot trees as close as 1o feet apart, but up to 20 feet apart. A

Prune the pluot tree in the winter to manage its size and shape. Pruning also directs the plants energy towards desired growth.  Thin the tree in the Summer. Top the tree to promote lateral growth. Remove suckers and small growths from lowest in the tree and below the graft. Make sure the center of the tree is clean of dense growth and dry twigs.

Do not provide supplemental water in the Winter while the tree is dormant. Begin to deeply water once the tree leafs out in the Spring. About once per week for newly planted trees. Increase the frequency of irrigation as the temperatures increase in the Summer. Water newly planted trees once to twice per week during the growing seasons in clay/loamy soils. Sandy soils may need more water. Mature established trees in clay soils can be watered about every 2 weeks or less frequently depending on the weather.
