Prized for its undemanding nature, reliable crop of tasty fruit and amazing versatility, this sturdy cultivar is exceptionally hardy.
Undemanding to grow and self-fertile, 'Ontario' is covered in a profusion of white blossom in spring, followed by sweet medium sized oval plums that are delicious eaten straight from the tree, with yellow skin tinged with green and succulent golden flesh.
For cooking, the sweet flesh separates easily from the stone, making this an excellent choice for jams, jellies and other fruit preserves, or poached with custard!
