Plum - Herman

Very early blue/purple dessert plum, sweet and juicy with exqusite flavour. Delicious eaten fresh from the tree, it also cooks well. A heavy and reliable cropper, the branches may need extra support to avoid breaking under the weight of fruit. Self-fertile.

Season: Late July

Planting Distance: 5m (16ft)

Approximate Height: 4m (13ft) after 10 years

Once your tree starts flowering, any instance of poor fruit set is likely to be the result of frost or bad weather at blossom time.

This plum tree is growing on a semi-dwarf rootstock, ideal for the average garden.

Plums need a sunny site and a neutral soil to crop well, a pH of 6.0 - 7.5 is ideal.
