Plum Lizzie Bare Root x1

  • Catalogue Code 1070-5624
  • Pack Contents: 1x bare root tree
  • Japanese plum variety – super sweet and juicy plums with blood-red flesh
  • Attractive, frost-resistant blossoms in early spring
  • Great fruit bowl and culinary plum- reduces well on stewing
  • Self-fertile tree; fruits well even in isolation of other plums

Grow plum Lizzie on your plot, garden or allotment for delicious, sun-ripe plums every summer. These Japanese plums are super sweet, great for adding to the fruit bowl. The flesh is blood-red and particularly juicy which makes them so deliciously thirst-quenching in high summer.

Plum Lizzie makes a great culinary fruit too. It reduces well on stewing, great for jams and traditional British puddings.

In late winter to spring your tree blossoms in big numbers, heralding the start of spring. These attractive flowers are like magnets for animated pollinating insects including bees and ladybirds.

Your fruit tree spends the first year or two settling into its new home, creating a good framework of flowering and fruiting stems, when you plant it in rich soil. After this time period it fruits heavily so we recommend that you pick off around a quarter to a third of the fruit while it’s developing in late spring. This takes some of the weight off the fruiting stems, so they don’t break as the fruit gets bigger.
