Victoria Plum - Prunus domestica Victoria

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. They are self-fertile and pollinate other plums, damsons and mirabelles well. The season for picking usully runs from August into September

Victoria plums have a reputation for being wasp magnets. To be honest, this is true, they crop so heavily that there is almost always some over-ripe fruit around the place. But here is a sneaky tip (if you don't mind killing wasps). Just hang wasp traps (make your own out of glass jars half-filled with sugary water or beer, or buy them) in early July. Clear them out and keep them going and they will trap the wasp ‘scouts’ who therefore will not make it back to tell the others. If waspicide is too much to bear, then have a look at some of the other plum trees we sell which may suit you better.

Please note that all our Victoria plum trees are on St Julien A rootstocks unless otherwise described.
