Q.Pruning green gage plum trees

Zone 95531 | STACEE added on August 9, 2019 | Answered

Hello, I have a question about pruning my very prolific green gage plum tree. I read your article on green gage plums and thuroughly enjoyed it. But, in your article you said;

“Prune the plum trees in the late spring or early summer. Green Gage plums will be ready for harvest from late summer into early fall.”

So my obvious question is this; How can I prune my tree in the late spring or early summer if it still has fruit on it?? lol

Thanks for your reply, I really appreciate it.

If it still has fruit on it, you wouldn't prune it because in established plants, you would only prune non productive wood.
