Plum Tree - Warwickshire Drooper
Origin: Unknown
Plum Type: Culinary/Dessert
Flowering Group : 2
Size : Maiden
Harvest : September
Rootstock:St. Julien A 

The Warwickshire Drooper was probably originally Prunus Domestica Dundale from Kent. Maybe! It was once grown extensively in the Midlands, but is now a much rarer thing for reasons that escape us. It has handsome golden yellow egg shape plums with yellow juicy flesh with a good flavour. Unusually they taste well cooked or eaten fresh. Vigorous, healthy, and - yes - drooping, like a weeping willow. Follows on well from Victoria. Although the Warwickshire Drooper is self fertile, yields are likely to be improved by planting with an appropriate pollinator.

All our plum 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 Warwickshire Drooper 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 plum trees.
