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

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.
