Plum Marjorie's Seedling

Plum Marjorie’s Seedling

Found as a chance seedling at a Berkshire farm in 1912, late dual-purpose Plum Marjorie’s Seedling is widely grown commercially for all the reasons that make it a good choice for the home grower. The fruit, which can be picked as late as October, is large, with deep blue-black, bloomed skin; the flesh is greenish-yellow with a clinging stone. In a good summer, the fruit becomes moderately sweet and good to eat if left to ripen fully on the tree; fruit holds well on the tree until the first frosts.The tree is vigorous and upright, a reliable and heavy cropper. Disease resistance is excellent, particularly to silver-leaf and canker, so good for organic growers. Flowers late, so a good choice for colder areas; partially self-fertile, but crops better with a compatible partner. Holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
