Prunus domestica ‘Victoria’ – Plum Victoria 6-8cm girth

Prunus domestica ‘Victoria’ is a small to medium-sized, deciduous tree with green leaves and white flowers in spring which are followed by large, dark red fruits in August and September. These fruits have a pale purple/red skin with a yellow/green flesh with a delicious flavour, and as this is a late season plum it misses early frosts, ideal for both commercial and amateur growers. Grown on a ‘St Julien A’ rootstock to produce a strong tree, Prunus domestica ‘Victoria’ will reach a mature height of 4-6m, we would recommend planting this tree in fertile, moist, well-draining soil in full sun.

Bare root fruit trees are available to buy from November to March each year whilst the trees are dormant. 

If you don’t intend to plant a bare root tree immediately upon arrival, store the tree in a cool, frost free shed or garage. It is important to ensure the roots are not exposed to the sun or drying winds between lifting in the nursery and planting on site. Great care should be taken to ensure the tree is heeled in tight to obtain good root/soil contact. The tree should also be staked to provide stability.
