Buy plum 'Aprimira' (miracot) plum: Wonderfully sweet fruit in late summer

  • Soil: will tolerate most soils, except very chalky or badly drained
  • Rate of growth: slow growing
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A cross between a mirabelle and an apricot, Miracot 'Aprimira' produces wonderfully sweet and juicy fruit around late August. This self-fertile variety has the best of both parents with its large mirabelle-like fruits developing to the size of small apricots. In spring a profusion of white blossom appears at the same time as the leaves.

  • Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly.
    Stone fruits like the plums should be pruned in the summer because they are prone to a disease called Silver Leaf which enters through cuts. If you prune in late summer, the sap is slowing but is still running fast enoughenough to seal up any wounds. Check and remove any damaged, diseased or broken branches.
