A superb new plum tree. A far superior replacement for Victoria. We would not make such a leading claim were it not without any doubt true. Jubilee is, we believe, finally the variety to take over from Victoria as the finest plum of all. The fruit quality is superb with a much larger size and more uniform quality. The attractive light red colour and succulent yellow flesh hints at the sweet, juicy eating qualities which are perfect for dessert and, like Victoria, also cook and bottle well. It is a very reliable performer with blossom which sets well, excellent disease resistance, and having been raised in Sweden -it is very, very hardy. Very high yielding, a good grower, and ripens just a few days before Victoria. Self fertile - grows and crops well on its own. This is the variety we have all been waiting for. Easy to grow and train. Fine flavour - always reliable - Self fertile. If you would like to be one of the first to grow it, we recommend you order early. We have a limited number of trees available on rootstocks Pixy, St Julian and as Supercolumns. Please add £1.00 extra per tree for this variety.
A useful, fairly spreading tree amply clothed with branches. The medium sized blue fruits have a slight bloom & a very good sweet flavour. The flesh is a greenish yellow & the fruits ripen from the second half of September and often hang on the tree in a good condition until well into October. They are of sufficiently fine flavour for dessert use but also excel for all Culinary purposes. Partly self fertile but for a full crop pollinate with Victoria, Jubilee, Marjories etc. Re-introduced to our list by popular request!
As the name suggests, a variety with a drooping habit. Very large, yellow plums in mid-late September. A dual purpose plum that is superb for all culinary purposes and can also be eaten for dessert. Attractive habit with cascading branches. Freezes well. Self fertile.
We are very pleased to introduce this new Swedish raised variety which shows great promise as a perfect variety for the Amateur Gardener. The very attractive dark violet-blue fruits are shaped like Victoria and have a succulent sweet yellow flesh that is delicious for all dessert purposes. The tree itself could he described as the perfect garden tree - naturally spur bearing (which means little pruning), extremely productive and very hardy. The fruits are large and highly uniform quality. Violetta is a superb introduction with a great future. Highly recommended, especially as a partner to the favourite, Victoria, which it precedes in season by 2 weeks. Now proving self fertile.
