Fan trained Plum trees are used against a wall; you will need not less than 180 x 180cm’s for a fan or espalier tree. Please note we do not supply ready trained trees; this 'Czar' is a young tree suitable for training yourself, in situ. Such trees usually settle to cropping within 2 or 3 seasons.
The Czar is one of the most popular of all Plum tree varieties and is always recommended as a durable, hardy cropper. It suits dual purpose and is also self fertile & easy to grow.
