Plum Opal fruit tree
Supplied on St Julien A rootstock
An early variety with dusky red fruit which becomes bluer as the fruit ages. The plums ripen over a one to two week period, making the crop easier to manage and consume and the stone falls away easily from the flesh. It’s a great variety for growing against a south facing wall to give the plums a more intense flavour. Self-fertile. Pollination Group 3. Harvest late July.
Growing your own fruit trees is incredibly rewarding and the taste of the fruit picked is truly delicious – fresh, tangy and nutritious. Our range has been chosen with care and offers varieties which perform well in the UK, cropping readily for many years and providing structure and character to our gardens.
Some varieties are self-fertile, perfect if you only have room for one or two trees, but we also list the pollination group for each variety we sell – helpful if you want to add to your collection further down the line.
The vast majority of our range are offered as field grown, bare root trees dug freshly from the field (as opposed to cold stored), carefully packed and then despatched by courier.
All bare root trees will be despatched from Late November onwards (weather depending), the perfect time for planting.
All our trees are supplied with a full and complete growing guide.

Most gardens provide good pollination due to the close proximity to other gardens with fruit trees growing in them, so it’s not always necessary to have pollinators in your garden. However, if you have no other fruit trees close by, then select two varieties in the same group, or the adjoining group – so, for example, varieties in group 2 or 4 will pollinate varieties in group 3. It’s also worth remembering that some varieties are self-fertile.
