Description

Two great varieties that grow on one one tree- what could be better.

Just plant one tree and you can choose to harvest two types of plums; whether you want to eat fresh plums off the tree or pick them for the perfect pie.

Our fruit trees are expertly trained so they have strong main branches, ready to fruit heavily once planted and well-established. Our varieties are specially grafted onto roots that keep trees smaller for easier harvests, while maintaining impressive yields.

Both these varieties are self-fertile (SF) so they flower and fruit independently. They produce fruit, even when planted in isolation.

Plum ‘Opal’ - A fantastic-flavoured early plum variety which you’ll be enjoying from those late summer days in September

Plum ‘Damson Merryweather’The rewarding variety offers you both flowers and fruit in abundance. From April your tree produces a canopy full of blossom which attracts important pollinators like bees which are likely to pollinate other crops on your patch like strawberries and tomatoes

✔ Two varieties grafted onto one stem

✔ An extended cropping season

✔ 2 different flavours from the same amount of space

✔ More room in your garden for other crops

✔ The two varieties pollinate each other

✔ Ideal for small plots, patios or kitchen gardens

✔ Grows well in large containers

In order to ensure a good pollination pick fruit trees from within the same or from adjacent flowering groups.

We may prune your tree before it arrives to your door. We do this to encourage your tree to branch freely which makes them better looking and more productive.
