The Czar's pretty, dark-blue fruits look wonderful as they ripen on the tree in August each year, following its attractive and fragrant white blossom, providing a wonderful spectacle throughout spring and summer. The delicious fruits have a brilliant acidic sharpness when picked early, perfect for cooking plum puddings and making jam, making The Czar one of the most popular cooking varieties around. Wait a bit longer though, and the fruits turn a deep, rich, almost black colour as they mature, softening in flavour and gaining a wonderful sweetness that will fill your mouth as you bite into the juicy, yellow-green flesh then they are simply wonderful eaten straight of the tree! The Czar is a really rewarding tree to grow in your garden and whats more, you will save a fortune compared to supermarket plum prices, over the long life of your tree.
