Plum Type: Culinary

The original Yellow Pershore was found by George Crooke and his son Thomas in Tiddesley Wood, Pershore. It has medium sized canary coloured fruit with firm flesh. Yellow Pershore is an excellent culinary plum which will keep well if picked before fully ripe, and freezes well. The tree is heavy cropping and disease resistant, with largely frost proof blossom. Although Yellow Pershore is self fertile, yields are likely to be improved by planting an appropriate pollinator nearby.
