This is also known as River's Early Prolific and the clue's in the name. This is a brilliant English plum that boasts showy white blossoms in the spring followed by a heavy crop of delicious fruit in July. The purple-brown oval fruit can be eaten fresh from the tree but is more often used as a culinary plum, perfect for jams jams, preserves or desserts. Grafted onto St Julien root stock which is not strictly dwarf, which no Plum is, but is easily manageable. All our varieties of Plum tree are self-fertile, though Early Rivers will crop better if there are pollinators nearby. Two year old bare root trees supplied.

Pruning

Late Winter/Early Spring

Fruit trees are suitable for planting in most types of moderately fertile, well drained soil, although they do not like acid soil. If possible prepare the ground some time in advance of planting. Open out holes and plant with enough space to accommodate the roots without cramping them. Plant in a sunny location as they do not prosper too well in the shade. Make sure that you plant with a stake, as this will be needed for at least five years to help support the tree.
Young trees must be watered thoroughly and sprinkle with fertilizer each spring. You can also mulch in April with rotted manure or compost around the base of the trunk. They should be planted in well sheltered locations. They will blossom and flower in Spring and fruit is normally ready to be picked throughout Autumn.
