Plum Tree - Rivers' Early Prolific

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.

They will grow up to over 3.5m.

Supplier : R.V.Roger Ltd.

All our fruit trees are bare root, so they are only available between November and April. During lifting season, there will be a delay between placing the order and dispatching due to pressure of orders, which are dealt with in date sequence, and the weather. Orders taken from June-October will be confirmed in late October/ early November after a nursery stock take, for dispatch from November. Please consult our planting and care guide on receipt of your order.

Your purchase helps us support a range of charities, which are related to the products we sell.
