Prunus domestica 'Victoria' is a hardy and tough tree that can tolerate most soil types except very chalky or badly drained areas. This tree is very reliable and will produce heavy crops of fruit ready for picking in late August. The fruits are preceded by lovely white flowers in April and May that attract birds and butterflies into your garden.
Nothing is more satisfying than strolling into your garden and picking a luscious red plum off a tree! The Victoria Plum Tree is easy to grow and is self pollinating. That means it does not require another fruit tree nearby to enable it to produce fruit. Simply plant and wait for your crops to be ready for picking.
The fruits are oval in shape and have a pale red to purple skin flushed with golden-yellow. The flesh is golden-yellow and juicy with a delicious sweet flavour. Victoria Plums are dual purpose and can be eaten straight off the tree or used in cooking. How about whipping up a mouth-watering plum pie smothered in cream, an exotic plum chutney or a classic plum jam or jelly?
Prunus domestica 'Victoria' has its heritage in Sussex in the 19th century. We offer the tree as a Pixy, dwarfing rootstock. This rootstock is suitable for training into a cordon or dwarf bush. The tree will reach heights of 2-3m in a 10 year period if trained as a bush. The other varient we have is St Julien, semi-dwarfing rootstock. The tree will reach heights of 4-5m in a 10 year period.
Once you see how easy it is to grow your own fruit trees, you will find that the Victoria Plum tree is a great pollinator for other plums trees in your garden. Plant an ‘Opal’ near by and soon you will have the beginnings of a small orchard.
