Q.What/when to spray on plum trees to prevent fruiting

Zone 95762 | Anonymous added on March 2, 2018 | Answered

We have 6 nice plum trees that screen our front patio – love the beautiful foliage, but do not want the fruit that drops and makes a mess on the cement below each year. Is there something we can do to prevent the trees from fruiting? Hope we haven’t missed the timing for spraying or whatever for this coming year.

Thank you!

Look into fruit eliminator sprays. There are several brands. I believe they must be applied during mid to full bloom stage.
