The Victoria is a tasty plum with light yellow-orange flesh. The most popular plum with both ameteur and commercial growers. “If you can only grow one, this is it” say many. It is a reliable and heavy cropper, but thinning is often essential to avoid biennial bearing. Its disease resistance is poor and flavour is average.
Strengths and gardening tips:
An old variety which has most definitely stood the test of time as both an eating and a cooking plum.
A very reliable tree which can produce a crop so large that the branches break.
Keep an eye out for this when the plums are forming and prune about half of them off if the crop looks to be large.
Self-fertile, Victoria produce a good crop of plums in August and September.
Growing your own fruit is educational, therapeutic, fun and also environmentally friendly - You won’t have to carry bags from the supermarket and there is no cost on mileage. They look great on the garden patio and also on balconies.
