Coe's Golden Drop is a traditional yellow English gage-like plum, with a very good rich sweet gage-like flavour, but some balancing sharpness. It is widely regarded as one of the best-flavoured of all English plums.
The attractive yellow free-stone plums are valuable for both dessert and culinary use. This versatility, combined with its excellent flavour and large size make it a particularly desirable plum tree for the keen fruit grower.
Next deliveries: December 2023 - February 2024.

Coe's Golden Drop is not as easy to grow as most plums. It is quite fussy about its situation - it does best in a sheltered location or trained on a south-facing wall.
The tree is generally healthy and can be quite vigorous on good soils. Cropping is very variable - it is best to assume it will be light, although if the tree likes where you have planted it then cropping can be very good.
This is essentially a variety for the plum enthusiast, who will, in a good year, be rewarded with perhaps the most refined of English plums.
