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.

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 St Julien rootstock. This is perfect for wire-trained shapes like fans and it can also make a freestanding tree 3 metres high.
