Blue Tit


Parentage: Czar x Green Gage

Description: Blue Tit is an old Laxtons variety of excellent quality. Produces regular crops of blue-black fruits with blue-black bloom. Flesh is yellow with pleasant sweet-sharp flavour. Best for eating fresh from the tree. The tree itself is compact in habit so perfect for the smaller space in the garden. Pretty white clusters of blossom appear in the spring.

History: Developed by Laxton Brothers in Bedford, UK around 1938. Recieved an Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society in 1995.
