Fruit Garden

A Good Year for Plums

Our young Marjorie’s Seedling rewarded us well this year with a decent yield of gorgeous deep purple fruits tinged with blue which I’m pleased to have captured in the photograph – they really are that stunning to look at. They’re not at all bitter or sharp and make good eaters, we’ve enjoyed eating them fresh from the tree without the need for pulling silly faces. Marjorie’s Seedling are good cooking plums too, a perfect choice for jam making and other scrummy plummy recipes.

If your garden is a frost pocket in spring then Marjorie’s Seedling may be the answer to succeeding with plums, flowering later than other plum trees it stands a better chance of setting fruit.
