For cooking, the sweet flesh separates easily from the stone, making this an excellent choice for jams, jellies and other fruit preserves, or poached with custard. Growing fruit tress enhances the well-being of the environment and that of you and your family. Crops of fresh, heathy fruit right on your doorstep while replenishing the tree population and reducing plastic consumption.
Supplied as an established plant, 90-110cm tall in a 5L pot, ready for immediate planting.
- Water regularly, and apply a mulch of well-rotted compost or manure over winter.
- Stone fruit should not be pruned during winter, to minimise the risk of infection – early summer is the ideal time.
- Established trees don't require radical pruning; just take off any diseased, dying or damaged branches (the three Ds). Look at the overall shape and aim for an open structure of branches, removing any that cross over so they don't damage each other.
- Hang wasp traps in trees and harvest crops as soon as they ripen. Avoid leaving windfalls or overripe fruit on the ground.
- Don't forget the tree guards as rabbits can strip the bark overnight.
February - November
