Plum - Jubilee

Wonderful early-cropping Swedish variety bred in the 1970's, Victoria is one of the parents. The fruits are significantly larger, delicious eaten straight off the tree, they also cook well. Regular and heavy cropping, the branches may need extra support to avoid breaking under the weight. Self-fertile.

Season: August

Planting Distance: 5m (16ft)

Approximate Height: 4m (13ft) after 10 years

Instances of poor pollination are nearly always caused by bad weather at blossom time, limiting the activity of insects.

This plum tree is growing on a semi-dwarf rootstock, ideal for the average garden.

Plums need a sunny site and a neutral soil to crop well, a pH of 6.0 - 7.5 is ideal.
