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.
