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 Opal is Pixy which is the best stock for cordon trees. Plant 60-80cm’s apart.
Opal is an early variety and the best in this class. Opal is a small well flavoured dessert plum.
