Introduction

Plums can be gorgeous and rich with a soft, juicy, and sweet flesh. There are also more tart varieties of plums, and sometimes plums can taste sharp simply because they have not ripened fully before being eaten.

Plums actually belong to the rose family, that also contains cherries, peaches, and apricots. From this family, plums and cherries standout as being easier to grow in the relatively cool UK climate. With the right plum tree, a gardener can be rewarded with a prolific plum harvest for many years.
