Marjories Seedling is a name you probably recognise even if you know nothing about plums and this exceptionally popular culinary plum variety is the late harvesting choice of the UK's commercial plum growers - and with one of our Organic Marjories Seedling Plum Trees growing happily in your back garden, you too could enjoy the sweet, yellow fleshed fruits of this heavy cropper.
Our Organic Marjories Seedling plum trees are grown on St Julien A rootstocks and are moderately vigorous in habit, making them ideal for growing as a bush tree or fan training along a sunny wall or fence - and as the plum trees are supplied as maidens, initial pruning and training is a simple task. Expect to harvest Majories Seedling plums from mid September and being so late flowering and ripening, they're ideal for growing in cooler or frost affected areas. The plums are deep purple in colour with a distinctive blue sheen and can be eaten if left to ripen as well as used for cooking.
Organic Marjories Seedling 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.
