The 'Victoria' Plum (Prunus domestica 'Victoria') was introduced in the 19th century and named after Queen Victoria. It's the most widely known plum and consequently the best-selling of our plums. 'Victoria' plums are an attractive oval shape, are a striking bright red colour at harvest time. A versatile plum, it is widely used as a dessert plum or for bottling and canning. A clean fruit, it does have a susceptibility to disease, however, this is tolerated given the quality and sheer quantity of fruit produced.
