Dwarf Plum - Mariposa

Got mine bare rooted and planted in 50 cm pot with good premium potting mix. And mulched is growing like a house on fire at the moment, although will not see fruit for 2 to 3 years, but happy with that as I bought them for myself and new grandchildren that are only six months old And they should be fruiting when they are two or three can't wait but so far so good
