A very modern late-season plum, developed in the UK. Guinevere is a large puple / black plum, similar to Marjories Seedling, but primarily a dessert plum.
Unusually for a European plum, Guinevere stores quite well if kept refrigerated.
Deliveries resume December 2020
Guinevere is a very new variety and we welcome feedback on its performance in different growing conditions. However it seems to be a compact and well-shaped tree, which comes into bearing relatively early in the life of the tree, and appears to be self-fertile. (Most European plums come into bearing after about 4 years on the St. Julien A rootstock).
Developed in Kent, UK, released for sale in 2000.
