Named in honour of the much-loved Queen, ‘Victoria’ is the UK's favourite plum variety by a mile and deservedly so! 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! A fully established tree of this 'self-fertile' variety will produce up to 100lbs of fruit in a bumper season! Crops: August-September
‘Czar’s pretty, dark-blue fruits look wonderful as they ripen on the tree in August each year, following its attractive and fragrant white blossom, providing a wonderful spectacle throughout spring and summer. The delicious fruits have a brilliant acidic sharpness when picked early, perfect for cooking plum puddings and making jam, making ‘Czar’ one of the most popular cooking varieties around. Wait a bit longer though, and the fruits turn a deep, rich, almost black colour as they mature, softening in flavour and gaining a wonderful sweetness that will fill your mouth as you bite into the juicy, yellow-green flesh – then they are simply wonderful eaten straight of the tree! Crops: August-September
