Do plum trees have thorns on them?
Are there any plum trees that have spikes on them?
Generally speaking, wild plums are very easy to go from seed to planting, and they can be transplanted from seed to other locations as well. They grow on prairies, woodlands, pastures, along highways, and along the banks of rivers in the United States.
A well-drained soil is essential for wild plum plants, and they tolerate shade well. During the flowering period, which takes place from April to May, and during the fruiting season, which takes place from August to September, wild plums produce their plums.
It has also been brought to my attention that wild plums should not be consumed while they are still in the wild. Although wild plums can be eaten raw as a snack, they are normally cooked as their natural tartness (and bitterness) makes them a bad choice for raw consumption.
There is fruit this year and it appears to be on the thin branches; however, the fatter branches do not seem to have any fruit, only leaves and what appears to be huge spikes or thorns.
If you visit the photographs, you will obviously see the thorns of the plum trees. If you decide to plant a plum tree (Prunus spp.) in your native plant garden, you will only have to deal with thorns, because wild plums (including the American wild plum (Prunus americana) and others) grow on thorny branches.
Wild plums do not have thick thorns, and the American Wild Plum (Prunus americana) is an example of a wild plum that has thick thorns; therefore, plum trees for a Native Plant Garden do not have thick thorns.
