Plant type
Mount Royal is a European prune-type plum, tender and juicy. It is wonderful for fresh eating, cooking, or preservees. It has a handsome growth pattern and is hardy and self-fertile. Ripens in September. If you only have space for one plum tree, plant a Mount Royal or Greengage.

Plums grow well in Central Vermont. They are beautiful flowering trees worth planting as ornamentals. Many varieties start bearing their sweet, juicy fruit in as little as one or two years after planting. Coating developing fruit with kaolin clay (Surround® spray) just after petal drop can dramatically reduce fruit loss to the pest plum curculio.

For best pollination, plant three or more varieties relatively close together (8-15 ft). Mount Royal and Greengage plums are self-fertile and may be planted singly but will not reliably pollinate the other varieties.
