History and description of Yellow Pershore

Original seedling found by George Crooke in Tiddesley Woods, Pershore, Worcesetershire, UK in 1827. It was widely planted in Worcestershire and later commercially elsewhere in the UK. Traditionally it was propagated from suckers which grew into medium sized compact trees. It has also been also used as a rootstock.

Medium sized, slightly necked, oval fruit. Canary yellow bloomy skin. Firm, dry, yellow flesh. Not much flavour as a dessert plum but an excellent cooking plum. Will keep well if picked before fully ripe. Very good for freezing.

A compact tree of moderate vigour. Hardy, disease resistant and self-fertile. Heavy cropper with a tendency to overcrop. Can be grow on its own roots.
