Product Information

A dessert plum which has an excellent flavour. The flesh is straw yellow, juicy and sweet and the skin is dusky red with a heavy white 'bloom'. The plums are at their best just before they turn deep blue and should be used with two or three days once picked. 'Opal' produces fruit over two or three weeks, in July so there is not usually a glut to deal with. Grow in a sunny spot and well cultivated, moist but well drained soil. In colder parts of the country, this variety may benefit from being grown on a sheltered warm wall, to improve the quantity and flavour of the fruit.

Please dont panic if a plant looks different to the image on the Website. It is likely to be in perfect condition for the time of year and just resting before it bursts into action in the coming season.

Plants do look very different throughout the year. Particularly in winter, many shrubs will look rather bare and stick-like and perennial plants may not even be showing through the soil.
