Victoria is the most planted plum tree. Very productive, easy to grow, regular crops provided surplus fruitlets are thinned out by late June. It is suitable for fresh consumption as well as bottling, jam-making and processing. The tree is very sensitive to the disease Silver Leaf fungus. Avoid branch breakages or any other wounds that would enable the spores to enter the tree’s cambium layer.
