This variety is very old and has stood the test of time, often surviving in old cottage gardens and still productive!

This Burbanks tree is grown on dwarf Pixy stock which is compact and makes the smallest Plum tree of all. Trees can be maintained at around 180cm’s in height with a similar spread, perhaps a little less if contained in a 20-24”” pot. The trees are easy to manage and easy to harvest with no ladders required.

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.
