Fruit Profile:
   Color: Purple shades

   Notes: Fruitful and dependable, 'Stanley' is as decorative as it is productive, with a dense, rounded form and an extremely profuse, fragrant show of single white flowers in early May. The whole tree may be completely obscured by this bloom that lasts up to 2 weeks with countless small fruit following soon after the bloom passes. This fruit grows and finally matures in September, producing a tasty prune-type plum that has purple skin, yellow flesh and a high sugar content that is great fresh or dried. 'Stanley' is self-fruitful so it is self-sufficient in producing its huge crop of tasty plums.

Option 2: Jobes fertilizer spikes simplify fertilizing your tree. Per the Jobe's company, "Fertilizer spikes take the mess and guesswork out of plant nutrition." How?

Fun fact: Jobes tree spikes are activated by the soil's fungal and bacterial activity (VERY COOL!).
