Plum – with Fruit

One of the great pleasures of growing bonsai of the flowering and fruiting type is that you get to appreciate the significant changes throughout the seasons, bare in the winter, flowers in the spring, fruit in summer and leaf colour in autumn. Such substantial changes you do not get in conifers. I enjoy plums as bonsai and at this time the fruit is just beginning to set and I like the look now as the fruit size is more in keeping with the tree size. This tree was dug from the bush somewhere and has been in proper training for about four years or so. It still needs work on its ramification and the jin and shari but that will all come with time, for now I just enjoy the seasonal changes. A close up so you can see the fruit I am often asked can you eat the fruit, and the answer is yes, but it is very sour. This bonsai has about 6 or 7 fruit and if they continue to mature I will take a few more photos in the summer.
