Victoria plum trees are a safe bet. They are reliable croppers that produce one of the best known eating plums in huge quantities. Victoria plums are sweet and juicy and are excellent for cooking, jam making and desserts.
Victoria plum trees are famous for breaking under the weight of their crops - you will get much larger fruit (and still plenty of them) if you pick over your Victoria plum at the fruitlet stage, removing every other plum. Don't be scared, some people take off 2 out of 3.
Like most stone fruit, Victoria plums love richer soils and a warm spot. Self-fertile. Use August-September
Please note that while our 2 year old Victoria plum trees (bushes and half standards) are on St Julien A rootstocks, our maidens are on Pixy which we think is a better rootstock for this variety if you want to train a fan or espalier.
