Prunus domestica 'Kirke's Blue'

Introduced by Joseph Kirke of London in 1830, this large, round, dark blue plum is still the finest flavored of all. Each August, trees at the Wisley Royal Horticultural gardens produce incomparable freestone fruit with yellow, drippingly juicy flesh and fantastic flavor.

This particular variety will flourish in dry spring regions that enjoy solid summer heat. Partially self fertile in many locations, and larger yields of this fabulous fruit with a pollinizing partner.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • Will Kirke's Blue overlap bloom with Ersinger (which I have on St. Julian A)?

    Maybe. Damson plums, of which Kirke's Blue is derived from, tend to bloom together and do not always overlap with other European plums.

  • Kirke's is the finest flavor of all the blue Damson types, or all the plums in the kingdom?

    A very subjective question, but in the case of this description it's within the damson subtype.
