History and description of Victoria

The original seedling of Victoria plum was found in a garden at Alderton, Sussex. It was bought by Denyer a nurseryman at Brixton in London who introduced the variety c 1840. Awarded a First Class Certificate by the RHS in 1973. It is the most widely grown commercial variety in the UK.

Medium large, oval fruit. Pinkish red skin when ripe with a pale blue bloom. Yellow, grainy, firm juicy flesh. Quite sweet but with some acidity. A very popular dessert variety . Even better as a culinary plum producing a lovely pink syrup and an almond aroma when cooked.

Moderately vigorous tree producing long spreading branches. Self-fertile. Heavy cropper sometimes producing crops which are too heavy and result in small fruit or broken branches. Susceptible to both Silver Leaf and bacterial canker.
