Yellow Pershore Plum

Plum

Description: Yellow Pershore, also known as the fondly named ‘Yellow Egg Plum’ is a traditional, old fashioned cooking variety. Heavy and reliable crops of large, yellow fruits that have yellow juicy flesh; sweet, sharp and delicious. Perfect for cooking into desserts as well as being the ideal bottling plum. Also tasty when picked and eaten straight from the tree, once it's fully ripe. The white blossom appears in the spring followed by dark green foliage, adding an attractive feature to the garden. An easy grower as it has good disease resistance and is very hardy so can be planted in any area of the UK, ideal for beginners!
