Prunus cerasifera 'Golden Sphere'

One of several cherry plums (mirabelles) recently bred in one of the harshest climates in the world (the Ukraine). The fruits are considerably larger than our native varieties, are delicious eaten fresh and can also be used for making jam. This variety produces heavy crops of exceptionally large beautiful golden cherry plums. The fruits are firm and juicy with an excellent sweet flavour.


Pollination: Partially self-fertile. Group A.


Season: late July.


Available for delivery: late November - late April.


 

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).
