Blaisdon Red Plum

Plum

Description: Blaisdon Red is probably the best jam maker of all, with a vibrant purple-red coloured skin that turns the golden yellow flesh bright red when cooked. The tree yields heavily with large crops of medium sized fruit and is fairly disease resistant. The tree itself is upright in habit so good for a small garden space. Lovely white blossoms appear in the spring.

History: Discovered in Blaisdon, Gloucestershire by Mr. Dowding of Blaisdon Village. Was planted out into many orchards in this area when it was first found and still is to this day.
