All about apples, pears, plums, and cherries - and orchards where they are grown

Jubileum plum


Jubileum is essentially an improved version of the popular Victoria plum.  Like Victoria, it excels as a culinary plum, but it is arguably superior for eating fresh.

The fruit is larger and a slightly darker red than Victoria

Jubileum was developed in Sweden in the 1980s.  It is sometimes known as Jubilee - which, confusingly, is also the name of a similar Victoria-style plum developed in 1905 by the famous Laxton Brothers nursery in the UK.

    Sweet and spicy flavour - one of the best you can grow in nothern areas. Firm flesh, large size, very attractive colour and a free stone. Self pollinated.

    I don't like the texture of this variety, it's rather jelly-like.

    This by far is my favorite Plum in addition to an original first class Santa Rosa. I have a thing about plum and would like to learn more about them.
