Plum Rivers' Early Prolific

Plum Rivers’ Early Prolific

Bred in the famous Rivers’ nursery about 1820, culinary Plum Rivers’ Early Prolific lives up to its name. The fruit is small to medium-sized, blue-black with a bluish bloom; the flesh is golden, juicy, and firm, with a free stone and tart, damson-like flavour. Ideal for cooking and jam but can be eaten as a dessert plum when fully ripe. The tree is compact and spreading with a slightly pendulous habit and slender branches; a heavy cropper – fruit should be thinned. Tolerates some shade.
