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 Opal is a young tree suitable for training yourself, in situ. Such trees usually settle to cropping within 2 or 3 seasons.
Opal is an early variety and the best in this class. Opal is a small well flavoured dessert plum.
