The delicious fruits are ready to pick each July and taste simply mouth-watering when eaten straight from the tree. With the remaining fruit you can make jams and preserves, and, of course, eat them stewed with custard. Victoria really has stood the test of time – undoubtedly because of its sublime flavour and productivity. A fully established tree of this self-fertile variety will produce up to 100lb of fruit in a bumper season. Growing fruit tress enhances the well-being of the environment and that of you and your family. Crops of fresh, heathy fruit right on your doorstep while replenishing the tree population and reducing plastic consumption. Grown on a dwarfing rootstock, approximately 80-100cm tall upon arrival.

Top Tips
- Add Rootgrow Mycorrhizal Fungi to give your plants a head start and establish more quickly.

Care Guide
- Apply a slow-release fertiliser such as blood, fish and bone in early spring, and mulch to retain moisture.
- For the biggest, juiciest plums, thin the fruits in May by removing some of the smaller, immature fruits. Then in July, while the plums are still hard, remove any that are damaged or diseased or touching others.
- Water regularly, and don't let the soil dry out if planted in pots.
- Hang wasp traps in trees and harvest crops as soon as they ripen. Avoid leaving windfalls or over-ripe fruit on the ground.
- Prune trees in late in July when they're in full growth. For young trees, take back the new upright growth by about a third. For older, mature trees, remove any dead, diseased or dying branches and then prune the older branches hard to promote productivity, aiming for an overall goblet shape.
