Plum Opal

Plum Opal

Bred in Sweden in 1925, Plum Opal is probably the best and most popular early dessert plum. The fruit is medium-sized, yellow mottled with purplish red, with very juicy, pale yellow flesh which is sweet when fully ripe, a free stone and excellent, gage-like flavour. Flavour is better if tree is wall-trained. The tree is vigorous, extremely reliable, and a heavy cropper – fruit should be thinned to prevent branches breaking and for best flavour. Good disease resistance. Holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
