An early large fruiting deep purple, oval plum (they start out dark red and fully ripen to purple) that is excellent for cooking because the flesh is quite dry and won't make your pastry and puddings soggy as well as making delicious dark coloured jam. The flesh is yellow in colour and the stone likes to cling to the flesh.

Belle de Louvain is tolerant of colder and windy climates as well as tolerating less sunshine than other varieties, so can make a ideal choice for North facing, Northern gardens. However this variety will take few years before it will fruit, so you may need to be a little patient (but it's well worth the wait).

Whilst this variety is named after a town in Belgium, it's exact heritage is not known, although there are records going back to 1845 when it was mentioned in the Van Mons collection.

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.

Recommended by the RHS to assist in encouraging bats into the garden as the flowers are likely to attract moths and other night-flying insects which bats love to eat!
