Organic Herman Plum Tree is an early ripening reliable dual purpose plum tree that can ripen from early July. The roundish plums are of medium size with a distinct suture that is often broad and deep.
A relatively new plum variety, supplied on moderately vigorous St Julien A rootstocks. Bred in Sweden at breeding station and known from 1972, perhaps the early ripening was of benefit to Swedish fruit growers with their shorter summers. Ripens to a blue/black colour with thick blue bloom and greenish yellow flesh of superb flavour.

Planting - do not attempt to plant your fruit trees when the ground is frozen or waterlogged.
