‘Victoria’ Plum Tree is one of the most popular plum varieties in the UK.
Introduced in mid 19th Century, Victoria has been praised for its versatile uses as a dessert and culinary plum.
An excellent variety for putting in jams and puddings, it also has a superb taste when eaten fresh off the tree.
In Spring, single white flowers are an added delight.
This plum is available in different rootstocks to suit a range of gardens. The rootstock controls the rate of growth so you can choose a rootstock suitable to where you would like to plant your tree. The rootstock also ensures the tree fruits earlier than when grown on its own roots.
Pixy, a Semi-Dwarf variety, is suitable for smaller gardens and where space is at a premium. This rootstock grows up to a mature height of 2.5m (8ft) after 10 years.
St Julian A, a Semi-Vigorous variety, is one of the largest rootstocks available for plum trees and is best suited to large gardens and where space is not an issue. This rootstock grows to a mature height upwards of 3.5m (11ft) after 10 years.
