Price: £34.00
Availability: In Stock
Product Code: 3675

A cross between a Japanese plum and an apricot, ‘Flavor King’ produces sugar sweet medium sized fruits that have a smooth reddish-purple skin and a gold to crimson coloured flesh, with an intense plum like flavour and a slight hint of spiciness.  In spring it displays attractive white blossoms which are slighter larger than that of a plum, but because it flowers early they should be protected from spring frosts.  ‘Flavor King’ can be grown outside in a sunny position in the south or the south-east of the country, but like apricots would need to be grown under glass in other areas.

‘Flavor King’ is not self fertile and should be grown with either our Japanese Plum ‘Methley’, our Miracot ‘Aprimira®’' or one of our early flowering Cherry Plums (Mirabelles)’.  It would also be pollinated by a different variety of Pluot.

Pluot trees are grafted on a St Julian ‘A’ rootstock and will reach an eventual height of 3.5-4.5m (12-15ft). Trees should be planted 3.5-4.5m (12-15ft) apart.

Available for delivery from late November until late March.


   


Please remember that fruit trees do require staking for the first few years of their life, we also strongly recommend the use of rootgrow™ when planting to encourage strong root growth and aid establishment. 

Tree stakes, rootgrow™ and fruit tree feed can be found by clicking on the 'related products' tab above.
