    A reliable, self-fertile plum which produces a heavy crop of large, pale red fruit with golden-yellow flesh, which can be used for cooking, canning, bottling or just eating fresh. The single, white flowers are produced in spring and fruiting picking can start in late August. It is one of the most popular plum trees available but does need the fruit to be thinned to avoid biennial fruiting. These bare root plants have approx 3-4 branches including the central leader, and are between 60-80cm wide x 1.5-1.8m tall.

  • Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly.
    Stone fruits like the plums should be pruned in the summer because they are prone to a disease called Silver Leaf which enters through cuts. If you prune in late summer, the sap is slowing but is still running fast enoughenough to seal up any wounds. Check and remove any damaged, diseased or broken branches.
