A high yielding, early fruiting, English plum, with good flavour, dark blue in colour, small fruits that are round. Was popular in Victorian times.

Dual purpose so can be used for cooking or eating, but some may find it a little sharp to eat straight from the tree.

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!
