Plum Tree - Laxton's Delicious
Origin: Bedfordshire, 1920
Plum Type: Culinary/Dessert
Flowering Group : 3
Rootstock: St Julien A
Size : Bush
Harvest : September
Laxton's Delicious has beautiful pinky-red fruit with a distinct lavender-blue bloom. The plums are very juicy and have a rich sugary flavour. Less prolific than Laxton's Cropper, but the plums have a slightly better flavour and keep just as well. Although Laxton's Delicious is self fertile, yields are likely to be improved by planting with an appropriate pollinator.
Supplier : R.V.Roger Ltd.
These 2-3 year old plants are over 120cm with a clear stem of 80cm and several lateral branches. They will grow up to around 4m.
