Shropshire prunes date back to the 17th century and still have much to offer modern growers. Blue-black fruits can be harvested in late September. The small fruits are sharp and astringent when fresh, but cook down to make fabulous jams and puddings with an intensely rich flavour. This variety is hardy, tough and suitable for growing in all areas of the UK. Being self fertile, it is reliable, producing excellent crops year after year.

  • Plum rootstocks:
  • VVA1 - Semi dwarf reaching a mature height of up to 2.5m (8')
  • St. Julien - Semi vigorous reaching a mature height of up to 4.5m (14')

This variety is self-fertile and does not require a pollination partner.

Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 4 years.

Shropshire prunes date back to the 17th century and still have much to offer modern growers. Blue-black fruits can be harvested in late September. The small fruits are sharp and astringent when fresh, but cook down to make fabulous jams and puddings with an intensely rich flavour. Plant plum trees in any well drained soil in a sheltered, sunny position. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole and drive the stake into the ground to support the tree. Staking after planting may result in damage to the root ball. Plant fruit trees at their original soil level and firm them into the ground. Fasten the tree to the stake using a tree tie, and water well.

Live Plants

Organic Garden Catalogue strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
