Plum Tree - Warwickshire Drooper
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.

Supplier : R.V.Roger Ltd.

All our plum 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.
