Prunus Belle de Louvain

Description of Belle de Louvain Plum Trees & Fruit:
This old cooking plum is highly recommended for exposed, cold or shady sites, where it will reliably make big crops, early in the season. If you want to make plum jam, pies or other cooked plum delicacies in poor conditions, this is the tree for you. It takes a little longer than most plums to reach maturity and begin to bear fruit, which is a good thing if your site isn't great because your tree will naturally spent longer putting down roots and developing its branches.
The fruit can be eaten fresh, but the texture is a bit dry and the flavour is weak.
