A self-fertile plum tree producing yellow-skinned fruit with orange flesh in mid- to late September. The first batch to be picked can be used as cookers, while those left hanging ripen even more and make good dessert plums. Grow in a sunny, sheltered site away from cold winds, and ideally where you don't get late spring frosts. The size depends on the vigour of the tree's rootstock, but it'll usually be the semi-dwarf kind giving top growth of 2.2-2.7m. Ideally, grow as a fan shape against a wall where you can cover it with a fleece when it needs frost protection, and where the extra heat quickens the ripening process.
