Victoria Plum Trees - Advice and Tips

The Victoria Plum Tree

The Victoria Plum is perhaps the most well know and well loved plum variety out there. It is a particular favourite here in England and was named after queen Victoria as you can guess. It’s known for its delicious sweet taste and pleasing appearance and is always a treat when it appears each year from late summer / early August.

Growing Victoria Plums

Victoria plums don’t usually become very large trees, and our Victoria trees are also grown to stay quite small but are packed with fruit. They are a great garden fruit tree to keep for this reason, but of course the main reason is because they grow delicious fruit.

Victoria Plums are often heavy croppers and will produce a good amount of plums each year. Although it is possible that some years will be heavier than others.

A sunny but sheltered spot would be ideal to grow your Victoria Plum Tree, if you can it would be better to grow it in the ground as opposed to a pot. However you can keep it in a pot if you have plans to move for example, but a large pot would be best in this case.

Victoria Plum tree care:

Whilst Victoria Plum Trees are good heavy and reliable croppers, like most fruit trees, they can be susceptible to certain diseases. If you notice any diseased fruit, you should remove it straight away as this will just attract wasps and more disease. Don’t worry too much though, Victoria Plums are really quite hardy and disease resistant and you should hopefully have nothing to worry about.

Harvesting your plums from your Victoria Plum Tree:

Plums should be left on the tree until they are ripe and ready to eat for maximum flavour. They don’t really mature after being taken from the tree. You will know when they are ripe because the fruit will not be too firm to touch and will come away gently from the tree.
