How to choose Cherry plum trees

Cherry Plums are usually categorised in the plum species - Prunus cerasifera. They are quite similar to damsons and mirabelles, and widely grown throughout Europe.

Cherry Plums are generally fully self-fertile, and flower very early in the spring. They will also cross-pollinate other plum varieties - usually only the earliest blooming - that are in flower at the same time.
