Step 2: Pick the Tree

Picture of Pick the Tree
When picking plums, you may want to put a plastic bag into your fruit picker to keep the tiny fruits from falling out. It's also a good idea to use a hard-sided bucket or basket to carry your plums home in (especially if you're on a bike!) to keep them from getting smushed.

We used three types of plums: Santa Rosa, Kauter Vesuvius Cherry Plums, and these little red ones.
