Cordon Plum trees are a good choice for restricted areas and a fence or wall. They can be grown at a 45degree angle, or upright. The rootstock we use for our cordon is Quince C which is the best stock for cordon trees. Plant 60-80cm’s apart.
This rather old and well known variety is one of the hardiest Plums so is good for frosty area’s, normally prtoducing a good crop under most conditions. A very heavily yielding tree that is primarily used for cooking purposes at which it excels.
