Plum Tree - Denbigh
Origin: Denbigh, Wales, pre 1785
Plum Type: Culinary/Dessert
Flowering Group : 3
Rootstock: St. Julien A

Harvest : August/September
The Denbigh plum is a truly ancient fruit. Some say it was grown by Carmelite monks in the town as early as the 13th century! It's the only surviving native Welsh plum, and a real beauty. It's good for eating and cooking, and the trees are healthy and self fertile. Once nearly lost, the “Vale of Clwyd Denbigh Plum” has been awarded European Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) status. The Vale has a long history of fruit production, which at its peak included well over 200 orchards. This history is apparent in Denbigh itself, which has street names like Bryn Eirin - "Plum Hill".
Pick in August if you want to cook with it, September to eat it fresh.
