Plum (Prunus) ‘Opal’
Pot size: 12 litre.
A Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit plum that is self-fertile (so does not need a pollinator).
This half-standard (St Julien A rootstock) dessert plum produces medium-sized, reddish purple, yellow-fleshed fruits that come from the stone easily and have a good flavour. Pick late July. Perfect for eating. Suits most soils, prefers a well-drained, moist soil. British-grown.
A half-standard fruit tree is a freestanding tree. It has a straight trunk when planted that is around 100-120cms in height before its initial branches. It will eventually have a round head of branches that will be approximately 3 metres across and 3 metres high.
Its plant growth occurs at the tip of its branches and its trunk height will remain the same during its lifetime. A half standard fruit tree will ultimately reach around 4 metres in height.
Don’t forget all our plants come with a five-year hardy plant guarantee.
