Plum Maturity Chart

The following Maturity Charts are to be used as a guide only. They provide approximate maturity dates of varieties compared against known standard varieties within each fruit category.

If you know when one of the standard varieties listed on the chart matures in your orchard location (eg 2 weeks later than listed on the chart), you can ‘slide’ that category of varieties across to more closely estimate maturity of other varieties in your region. The order in which varieties mature compared to each other should be similar.

Some of the standard varieties (older varieties of known maturity timing) include Santa Rosa plum and Amber Jewel plum.
