Organic Early Prolific Plum Tree
Get your plum picking season off to a flying start with Organic Early Prolific Plum Trees; just like their name suggests, they're heavy croppers and you could be harvesting your first fruits as early as July.
And although you'll have to wait until Early Prolific plums are ripe before tucking into them, you can certainly get to work in the kitchen making plum sauces and jam. The price you have to pay for this early plum crop is poor storage quality - all the more reason to enjoy them immediately.
The all important Early Prolific plums are oval in shape, have dark blue skin and a golden yellow flesh and as the organic Early Prolific plum trees are supplied on moderately vigorous St Julien A rootstocks, picking isn't gloing to be a problem! As Early Prolific isn't a self fertile variety, you will need to introduce a pollinating tree from groups C or E (Early Prolific falls into pollination group D) to ensure your tree is brimming with those early season plums!
Organic Early Prolific Plum Trees are despatched in bare-root form between November and March.

Planting and Delivery Information
See our Guide to Successful Fruit Trees for more growing advice.
Planting - do not attempt to plant your fruit trees when the ground is frozen or waterlogged. The trees can be stored in their packaging in an outbuilding or garage for 2-3 days, or can be heeled into the soil where the ground is not as frozen. Alternatively, plant up in large pots or containers and ensure the roots have good contact with the soil.
