Prunus Domestica Early Prolific Plum Tree
Prunus Domestica Early Prolific is also known as River's Early Prolific or Early Rivers Plum, after the nursery where it was developed in 1820, Rivers of Sawbridgeworth in Herefordshire. This early fruiting plum variety produces a heavy crop of a small, round blue plums.  

In April, the fragrant, white blossoms appear on the bare branches of this deciduous tree, attracting the bees that are necessary for pollination. It has received the RHS Perfect for Pollinators designation. The medium green leaves will provide summer shade, and by late July the crop of dark blue plums will be ready to harvest. Plum Early Prolific is freestone and while it can be eaten fresh, it is best used as a cooking plum, especially for jams.

Height and Spread of Prunus Domestica Early Prolific
Prunus Domestica Early Prolific will grow to a mature height of metres and spread of 2.5-4 metres in 5 to 10 years.

How Hardy Is Prunus Domestica Early Prolific?

How to Use Prunus Domestica Early Prolific
Prunus Domestica Early Prolific makes a good specimen tree for a small to medium-sized lawn, where its spring blossom show will be a highlight, and the late summer plums will provide both ornamental value and an edible crop. Plum Early Prolific would also be a good addition to a wildlife or woodland garden. Like most plums, it can be pruned and trained as a fan or cordon against a wall or fence, creating a living screen.

How to Care for Prunus Domestica Early Prolific
Plant Prunus Domestica Early Prolific in full sun in a sheltered position with a south or west-facing aspect, in moist but well-drained loam, sand or clay soil with a neutral pH. It is sensitive to aerosol salt, so needs to be planted away from sea winds in coastal areas. As it has a low tolerance for pollution, avoid its use in inner city gardens. Provide protection for young trees in country locations. While Plum Early Prolific is self-fertile, you will get a larger crop if it is planted near a suitable pollination partner such as Victoria Plum or Opal Plum. It is necessary to prune all plum trees annually in summer to ensure an open crown and good air circulation.

Prunus Domestica Early Prolific Plum tree is an excellent choice of fruit tree for UK gardeners. Hardy and prolific, this heritage variety will provide you with large crops of cooking plums for years to come!
