    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 fruit 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.
  • Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. Prune in summer to reduce the risk of silver leaf and bacterial canker.
