History and description of Warwickshire Drooper

The Dundale plum from Kent, UK is believed to be the original Warwickshire Drooper. However it was in the Midlands where it was first grown on a commercial scale and was known as Magnum. This name has now been replaced by Warwickshire Drooper. Traditionally it was grown on its roots and propagated from suckers. It was also used as a rootstock in the Midlands.

Medium sized, oval-oblong fruit. Yellow skin speckled with red spots, brownish russet patches and covered with a thin grey bloom. Tender, yellow flesh. Thick skinned. Quite sweet. Fruit hangs well on the tree.

Very vigorous tree with a conspicuous weeping habit. Very heavy regular cropper. Attractive tree particularly in the early autumn when it has long hanging branches full of yellow plums.
