Product Information

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! 

Supplied as an established plant 90-110cm tall in a 5L pot for immediate planting out. Height and spread after 10 years 3m.

Care Information

  • Water regularly, and apply a mulch of well-rotted compost or manure over winter.
  • Stone fruit should not be pruned during winter, to minimise the risk of infection  early summer is the ideal time.
  • Established trees don't require radical pruning; just take off any diseased, dying or damaged branches (the three Ds). Look at the overall shape and aim for an open structure of branches, removing any that cross over so they don't damage each other.
  • Hang wasp traps in trees and harvest crops as soon as they ripen. Avoid leaving windfalls or overripe fruit on the ground.
  • Don't forget the tree guards as rabbits can strip the bark overnight.
