This Opal plum 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.
Opal is an early variety and the best in this class. Opal is a small well flavoured dessert plum.
