Plum Tree - Opal


Heavy-Producing, Dessert Plum

Opal Plum is an early-season plum renowned for its exceptional flavor.  Plant a few in a sunny location anywhere near your house where you’re sure to enjoy its summer harvest. 

Your Opal Plum is one of the most popular plum varieties available today.  A freestone variety with exquisite flavor, it’s delightful right off the tree or used in culinary dishes.  Considered a dessert plum, you’re sure to adore its yellow, juicy flesh redolent of the sweet flavor of grapes. 

Even before you bite into it, you’ll notice the honeyed scent and vibrant, rosey-blush of this large, firm plum.  In fact, some people keep bowls of these in their homes to enjoy the natural fragrance and decorative appearance.

Opal Plum is one of the most reliable plums, and a heavy producer of fruit from July and into August.  The April flowers are white with delicate, yellow stamens, so Opal Plum will even provide a splash of spring color for your spring landscape. 

It will grow to 8 feet in height with an equal spread, and is tolerant of many soil types.  Opal Plum has good disease resistance also, so it’s one of the hardier plums you can choose.  It’s often considered self-fertile, but does better with pollination. 

Your Opal Plum is sure to be a terrific choice for your home.  Not only a lovely tree with delightful spring flowers, it’s also a prolific source of delicious fruit.  With an Opal Plum in your yard, you’re sure to enjoy a bountiful harvest of scrumptious plums each and every year.
