Hi PG,
Thanks for visiting our site! I am in Marietta, too!
The best time to plant a tree is in the winter. Dormant trees are asleep and will wake up in their new environment without knowing that they were moved.
Even evergreen trees have much less stress in the slow growing winter months.
Fruit trees will have the benefit of a full growing season when planted while they are dormant.

The best tree to plant is the tree that bears your favorite fruit, whatever that may be.
Now (February) is the best time to plant trees and shrubs!
Thank you for asking,

Can you graft a cross pollinator also to the root stock ? (2 trees in one)

Since this tree is grafted to a root stock, couldn't you also graft the "Cross pollinator"Santa Rosa or Medley to the same root stock ? If you could do that process it would be easy for customers.
I love this plum tree. But the problem is that I do not have enough space to plant 2 trees.
If you could graft the Burbank Plum and Santa Rosa to the same root stock, it will solve a lot of problems, and at the same time it will be profitable and convenient to customer, vendor and Home Depot at the same time.

Need clarifications on specs/descriptions.

This question is from 5 gal. 5 ft. Burbank Plum Fruit Tree
Asked by

It says in the description:
1.Cross pollinate with Santa Rosa or Medley for higher yields.
Does that mean it will still bear fruit (lower yield) with no cross pollination?
2. A compact, semi dwarf tree for the home orchard.
Does that mean that it is genetically altered?
3. reddish purple plums.
Does the picture reflect the actual fruits?

Answer: 
Thank you for your questions. While the Burbank Plum will bear white flowers every spring, the subsequent fruit crop will be very small without one of the pollinizers nearby. The tree has not been genetically altered but rather grafted onto rootstock that will control its mature size. The picture is representative of the crimson-red skin and yellow flesh of the Burbank plum.
