Prunus cerasifera ‘Countess’
This new cherry plum hybrid produces large (3-4cm) dark red fruits that are pear drops flavour before being ripe. Then as if by magic overnight they turn to being sweet and juicy. Bred in the harsh Ukraine climate and therefore very suited to our UK growing conditions.
Masses of fruit this year 2018, due to no late spring frosts and being partially self-fertile
Pollination: Partially self-fertile. Group A.
Season: late July
