Prunus Czar

Czar Plums are large, dark purple/blue and with sharp, yellow flesh. They are very edible although not as sweet as say a Victoria but they have the real advantage of being one of the best plums for cooking and making jam. The fruit is less juicy than a pure eating plum so it is firmer and holds together better when cooked.

Czar was bred in the 19th-century by Thomas River (perhaps the greatest fruit breeder of his day) and is one of the easiest of the plum trees we sell to grow. It is an unusually frost-resistant variety and so will do much better than most plums and gages in north-facing and semi-shady sites (please remember that no plum will really crop well in heavy shade - it is just that Czar is more shade tolerant than most). Czar plum trees are self-fertile, fruit from August and are magnificent pollinators of other plums.

If you are not sure what to do with them, then just try Czar plums in Mary Berry's Plumb Crumble - you will be won over in the first mouthful.

Please note that all our Czar plum trees are on St Julien A rootstocks unless otherwise described.
