Plum Yellow Pershore

Plum Yellow Pershore

Also known as Yellow Egg, culinary Plum Yellow Pershore has been grown commercially in Worcestershire since early Victorian times, and is a good choice for cold conditions. The fruit is medium-sized to large, oval, and ripens to bright yellow with a bloom; the flesh is yellow, dry and firm, with a sharp flavour, perfect for bottling, cooking and jam when picked slightly under-ripe, but can be eaten off the tree when fully ripe. The tree is moderately vigorous, compact in shape, exceptionally reliable, very easy to grow and a heavy cropper – fruit should be thinned to prevent branches breaking. Excellent disease resistance and good frost resistance. Holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
