All about apples, pears, plums, and cherries - and orchards where they are grown

Warwickshire Drooper plum


An attractive medium / large English yellow plum, grown commercially in the first half of the 20th century.  For eating fresh, Warwickshire Drooper has a pleasant flavour when ripe, but excels as a culinary plum.

As the name suggests, the tree grows with a weeping habit.
