Bare root maiden trees grafted to Almond, Myran or St Julien rootstocks. Almonds can be grown in Britain! These should do well wherever plums do. All these varieties flower very late (about the same time as plums) and are resistant to peach leaf curl. Plant two varieties if not self-fertile (even self-fertile varieties will crop better with cross pollination.)
Almond – vigorous, suitable for well-drained soils only. Makes a tree up to 6 m (20 ft) high.
Myran & St Julien A – vigorous, tolerant of wet soils and honey fungus. Makes a tree up to 6 m (20 ft) high.
