This tree came to us as a slim twiggy stick. I think we planted it sometime last spring. It's a Victoria Plum on a dwarf rootstock.
It is probably about as tall as I am - and like me won't get any taller. It is hung about with fruit - pounds - kilos, call the quantity what you will, there is a lot of it. This little tree looks like an illustration from a horticultural catalogue where the fruit has been added in Photoshop. This is for real. Trust me.
Plums for tea. Sweet and juicy. Clafouti, jam, pickle and chutney. Suggestions please.
*Dilemma: Does Victoria's need an apostrophe or not? They are definitely plural but they don't necessarily belong to Victoria. But the plural of Victoria - 'Victorias' looked very odd. I suppose this is greengrocer territory so my bewilderment is understandable.....
