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, a key factor in its Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit. 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.
