Opal plums are deliciously sweet, bite-sized dessert plums with a great colour range, from sunshine yellow to deep purple, often on one fruit. They have pale yellow flesh with a signature Greengage flavour. These are really early cropping plum trees and in a good year you can look forward to the first fruit being ready at the end of July - because they are so early.
Opal plums mature quite fast and they also reward being planted in a south facing spot - trained against a south facing wall is ideal. The mature size is about 2-3m x 2- 3m (6-9ft x 6-9ft)
Planting distance should be at least 3m (9ft apart)
