Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews Video

This heavy bearing Plum produces plenty of rounded, firm purple fruits with a deliciously juicy texture. Plum 'Black Amber' has a complex sweet flavour that is superb when eaten straight from the tree.

Grafted onto a semi-dwarfing rootstock, to produce a compact, productive tree. Plum 'Black Amber' is partially self-fertile but will produce a better yield if planted with a pollination companion such as Plum 'Victoria'. Height and spread if not containerised: 3m (10'). Rootstock: Ferlinain.

Feed and water containerised plants regularly. Pruning fruit trees begins immediately after planting. Remove the central stem to just above the highest side branch. For the following 3 years, prune only the tips of the remaining main branches by one third in winter. Aim for about six main branches which will form the frame of your tree, with fruiting sub branches growing off of them. From the fourth year, some sub branches can be pruned out at the union where they join the main branch, to allow new sub branches to take their place.
Plant patio fruit trees in 60cm (2’) diameter containers using a good quality compost such as John innes No.3. Alternatively plant them in any well drained soil in a sheltered sunny position. Plant fruit trees at their original soil level, firm them into the ground and water well.
