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 Jubilee is Pixy which is the best stock for cordon trees. Plant 60-80cm’s apart.
This Jubilee plum 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.
Jubilee [syn ‘Jubileeum’] is a superb recent introduction from Sweden that combines hardiness, fruit quality and self-fertile flowering to a marked degree. Described as the ideal garden Plum tree and our best--selling variety. The results achieved with Jubilee and always first class. Recommended highly.
