Prunus domestica 'Friar' is a popular European plum cultivar that is highly valued for its delicious taste, large size, and excellent storage qualities. This plum variety is known for its dark purple skin and yellowish-green flesh, which is juicy, sweet, and aromatic.

'Friar' plums are typically harvested in late summer and early fall and can be enjoyed fresh or used in a variety of culinary applications, such as jams, jellies, and baked goods. They are also a great choice for drying or canning, as they maintain their flavor and texture well.

In terms of growth characteristics, 'Friar' is a moderately vigorous tree with a spreading habit that can reach heights of up to 15 feet. It is self-fertile, meaning it does not require another tree for pollination, making it an excellent choice for home orchards.

Overall, Prunus domestica 'Friar' is a highly desirable plum cultivar that is sure to please any fruit lover with its exceptional taste, versatility, and beauty.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
