A reliable, self-fertile deciduous variety producing masses of single, white flowers in spring and heavy crops of large, oblong-shaped, pale red plums that are ready for picking in late August.
This is the most popular plum with both amateur and commercial growers bearing an abundance of fruit with rich, golden-yellow flesh thats suitable for cooking, canning, bottling or just eating fresh. The fruit needs to be thinned out to ensure a good crop is produced every year and not on a biennial basis.
Pollination group B. Although self fertile, it will benefit from having a pollination partner nearby, such as:
Rootstock 'Julian A' has a mature height and spread of 4.5m x 4.5m
Note: 2 year+ stock with established heads not 1 year maidens.Self-fertile.
Buying Fruit Trees/Bushes from Jacksons Nurseries
Unlike many garden centres, supermarkets and some nurseries here at Jacksons Nurseries we sell the majority of our stock all year round. Our stock is for the most part grown outdoors making it far hardier than those grown under glass and/or only sold ‘In Season’.
Here at Jacksons Nurseries we would favour a hardy outdoor grown plant every time. They are far less likely to suffer from the shock of being planted in colder conditions and they will begin to establish more rapidly the following spring. This can mean that they don’t look like a ‘picture perfect’ plant when purchased out of season but with the correct care and a little time you’ll have a wonderful plant to enjoy for many years to come.
