Growth and Spread: Ultimate height and spread of up to 4m.
Care and Maintenance: Czar plum trees are easy to grow in moist but well-draining soil with a neutral pH level. These fruit trees are hardy but prefer a sheltered spot in full sun.
Period of Interest: Foliage interest from spring to autumn. Flowers in spring and fruit from late summer.
This Czar plum tree is undemanding and easy to grow yet produces an impressive yield of fruit reliably every year. The plums have yellow-orange flesh and deep purple skins, are medium-large in size and juicy when ripe. They are ideal for cooking up delicious desserts and preserves.
White five-petalled flowers blossom on the tree from April to May, before the fruit starts to ripen. The toothed green foliage is deciduous, and the tree loses its leaves each autumn before bursting back into life the following spring.
Czar is a reliable self-pollinating tree and, at maturity, produces plenty of fruit year after year. Frost resistant and fully hardy in the UK, this fruit tree thrives in a sunny, sheltered spot in moist, well-draining, loamy or sandy soil. It is simple to look after, only needing watered during dry spells and requiring minimal pruning.
