An early ripening plum that is ready around Christmas time. Medium- sized fruit with red skin and yellow flesh. Duffs Early Jewel is a self-fertile variety and is a good pollinator for other varieties.
An excellent, early eating, European plum with smallish dark purple fruit. The flesh is yellow-green with a rich, sweet flavour. Mostly self fertile but can be planted with English Greengage to improve pollination.
Reportedely the best tasting plums EVER! Although I’ve never tried them and don’t think their colour really sells them, I’m keen to try them. Small to medium sized, round fruit with greenish-yellow skin. Flesh is amber-yellow coloured, firm with freestone. Good, sweet flavour. Tends to bear biannually. A favourite for cooking, canning and desserts. Ripens in late summer. Self-fertile but pollinates best with Angelina Burdett. Mid-season blooming. Forms relatively small tree. Exciting!
