Mirabelle Plum Tree 'Countess'

Mirabelle Plum Tree 'Countess' Code: PLM034

£25.95 25.9500 In Stock New

Prunus cerasifera 'Countess'

This new cherry plum hybrid produces large (3-4cm) dark red fruits that are delicious eaten fresh and can be used for stewing and making jam. The juicy yellow-red flesh has  a fine texture and is exceptionally sweet with a good plummy flavour. Bred in the harsh Ukraine climate and therefore very suited to our UK growing conditions.


Pollination: Partially self-fertile. Group A.


Season: late July.


Available for delivery: late November - early May.


 

Plums, gages and damsons are a wonderful choice of tree to grow in the garden as in favourable conditions they will crop reliably, producing masses of fruit year after year. Our plum trees are grafted onto St. Julien ‘A’ rootstock, which will produce a tree with medium vigour that can be trained into a bush, cordon, pyramid or fan. Bush plum trees will grow 3.6-4.6m (12-15ft) in height and spread. Choose a sunny, sheltered spot. To ensure rapid establishment, plum trees are supplied bare-rooted and will be 1.2-1.5m (4-5ft) high on despatch. Trees are available from late November to late April.

 

Don't forget to include tree stakes and ties. All young fruit trees require staking and for better establishment we strongly advise using Rootgrow when planting (as recommended in RHS planting guidelines).
