Cherry plum trees

Cherry plums are related to plums. The fruit is smaller, often heart-shaped and ripens earlier than plums. The fruit colours range from green and yellow to purple. They can both be eaten fresh or used to make jams and jellies. The trees have smaller more delicate leaves than plums and produce a profusion of white blossom in early spring. The mirabelles are golden yellow round cherry plums which are very popular in Continental Europe, particularly France. Click here for a guide to choosing damson, cherry plum and bullace trees.
