Prunes salicifolia - Tropical Cherry, Capulin

My tropical cherry is flowering right now. It’s been in the ground for more than a year and hasn’t fruited. It was in a pot for years, which it hated! Photo taken February 26,2022.

Glad you managed to transplant it successfully. I have a number of potted plants to transplant into borders this year. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

It’s easy and fast growing.

I hope your plants do well.

Lovely flowers! I see the fruit will grow in racemes or bunches, like grapes. You must show us a picture when the fruit is ready to pick.

I will definitely post pics of the fruit. It should form some fruit as there’s lots of panicles of flowers.
