Victoria is the most popular plum variety in the world. Produces heavy crops of large, oval-shaped bright red fruits that have darker red dots and are covered in medium, light blue bloom. The flesh is dark yellow with some streaks of red, moderately juicy and sweet, flavour fair. Perfect for eating fresh when they're picked ripe from the tree or can also be cooked into jams and desserts or used for bottling and canning. The stone cleans away from the flesh, freestone. Unfortunately disease prone but tolerable considering the quality and quantity that this variety produces. Beautiful white flowers appear during the spring making this a very attractive tree.

History

Found as a seedling in a garden at Alderton, Sussex and was sold to a nurseryman, Denyer from Brixton, who introduced the fruit in 1840. Unfortunately, any earlier history is unknown. Recieved an Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society in 1993.
