Malling Elizabeth Plum Trees were bred to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee 2022. Elizabeth is a pretty shaped self-fertile plum tree on St Julian A rootstock, growing to a height of approx. 3.5 to 4m. A small white blossom appears in spring. Large red-purple firm ovate-shaped plums are similar to our Victoria plum, cropping in early July, much earlier than Victoria. The plums are deliciously sweet and juicy with yellow-orange flesh. We like to think that planting this plum tree will remind us all of our beloved Queen.

The tree is watered before being carefully packed by one of our experienced staff on site. It comes in a cardboard box lined with straw. (We try to use as much recycling material as possible) The box is addressed to the customer or a specified name and address and sent out overnight delivery to arrive on requested dates.
Please note the size of the tree that you are ordering, as our trees are provided for our clients to plant themselves, which may appear at a small size rather than the fully grown tree as shown in the photos.
