Victoria is a versatile plum tree, producing fruit which can be eaten, used for cooking and for jams.It produces a heavy crop which often needs to be thinned if fruits are to be produced each year. Left to its own devices the sheer weight of fruit may well break the branches of the tree.Harvest between Mid-August to late September.If you are growing only one fruit tree, then this is the one to plant.It is self fertile and will pollinate with any other variety of plum.
Trees are grown on St Julien A rootstock which will grow to 10-12ft max.
It is self-fertile and will produce fruit by itself.
For better fruiting plant a compatible partner:
Cambridge Gage, Czar, Merryweather, Mirabelle de Nancy, Opal, Oullins Golden Gage,
Plums already but few branches
The shape as delivered seems determined by the packaging, so there are few branches. However, it looks healthy and we may even get three plums this year.
A big tree in a little box
I got a Victoria plum, as tall as expected fitted in a pot in a tall cardboard box.
The pot was wrapped in plastic to keep the roots moist. I am a bit surprised they got such a large tree in such a small pot, I guess some pruning was done and some of the leaders were well pruned as well.
Now its in the ground and I hope it settles in and grows!
