Description: Marjorie's Seedling is one of the latest picking plums for mid to late September. Produces good quality, large purple fruits that have brown dots and covered in thick, blue bloom. A dual purpose plum, tasty eaten straight from the tree and also baked into cakes, crumbles and jams. Flesh is yellow, and juicy. Not as sweet as other plums, but they do sweeten with age as they sit on the tree. An excellent cropper that's grown on a large commercial scale throughout the UK.
