Plum Tree - Rivers' Early Prolific
Origin: Hertfordshire, 1830
Plum Type: Culinary/Dessert
Flowering Group : 3
Rootstock: St. Julien A
Size : Maiden
Harvest : Early August

Introduced by the renowned nurseryman Thomas Rivers of Sawbridgeworth, Rivers' Early Prolific makes a small compact plum tree with small round purple fruit. The flesh is golden yellow, and when fully ripe the plums make for very pleasant eating - firm but sweet. Rivers' Early Prolific is excellent for cooking and bottling. Although this variety is self fertile, yields are likely to be improved by planting with an appropriate pollinator.

Supplier : R.V.Roger Ltd.

These 1- 2 year old plants are around 100cm high. They will grow up to over 3.5m.

All our fruit trees are bare root. At the height of the lifting season - between November and March - there may be up to a month's delay between placing the order and dispatching due to pressure of orders, which are dealt with in date sequence, and the weather. Orders for Rivers' Early Prolific plum trees from March to September are confirmed in late October/ early November ready for dispatch from November. Please consult our planting and care guide on receipt of your order.
