Plant details

A small, deliciously sweet plum with a rich flavour that crops in late August. The skin is greenish-apricot and the flesh yellow. It's self-fertile and one of the best for taste. Plums can be grown as fans against walls or cordons, or half-standard or standard trees. Since the spring flowers are easily damaged by frost (which adversely affects the crop), throw a fleece over the bush if a frost is predicted.
