Plum Tree - Czar
Origin: Hertfordshire, 1871
Plum Type: Culinary
Flowering Group : 3
Rootstock: St. Julien A
Size : Maiden
Harvest : August
Czar was named in honour of the Russian Emperor who was visiting the UK, a cross by Thomas Rivers of Prince Engelbert and his own Early Prolific. The compact growth of this variety of plum tree is very suitable for the smaller garden ( but go for the less vigorous St. Julian A rootstock) . The large purple fruits are tender with a pleasant slightly acidic flavour. Czar can be used as a dessert when fully ripe, otherwise a good cooking plum. It is fully self fertile, which makes Czar a good choice is you are looking for just one plum tree.
These plants will grow up to around 4m, and only require initial support with a cane.
