Prunus Langley Bullace - Late Season

Description of Langley Bullace Trees & Fruit:
The Langley Bullace is quite an odd looking tree. It's branches have a downward pointing habit as they emerge from the trunk, twisting upwards as they grow. Apart from that, it's a vigorous plant that becomes a heavy cropper when mature.
The nearly black fruit are too sharp for most people to eat fresh.

Characteristics of Langley Bullace Trees:

  • Self-fertile.
  • Almost black skin under a pale bloom. Green flesh.
  • Sharp flavour, excellent for cooking & jam.
  • Good for bottling & canning.
  • Crops in Late September to October.

Growing Langley Bullace Trees:
Rich soil is important - dig in plenty of good manure and compost before planting. Soil drainage must be good. The more sun your trees get the better your crops will be. Your trees are very hardy and suitable for Scotland & the North.

Pollination Partners for Langley Bullace:
Your trees are self fertile and don't need a pollination partner.

History & Parentage of Langley Bullace:
Bred by Mr Veitch of Langley in 1902 from Farleigh Damson and Early Orleans.
The RHS has given this tree 2 awards (Award of Merit & First Class Certificate).

You will see the Langley Bullace listed as a damson in some places. Some people call it a damson due its deep, purple-black colour, others call it a bullace because of its small size, and it is also known as a wild green gage or wintercrack plum. It is probably most correct to call it a small damson, but this just goes to show that nature does not conform to some human definitions!

Please note that our 2 year old half standard trees and our one year old maiden trees are on St Julien A rootstocks, whilst our two year old bush size trees are on a Pixy rootstock. This is perfect for wire-trained shapes like fans and it can also make a freestanding tree 3 metres high.
