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.

UK mainland delivery is charged at £8.95. Sending a tree through the post isn't easy, so our parcels are expertly packed to keep your goods in the best condition. There is no surcharge on the delivery of larger parcels/orders.
Tree size as supplied varies but is usually between 3.5' - 4.5' on despatch. A few varieties might be slightly smaller, some a little bigger, of course it does vary but this is a good average. WE SUPPLY YOUNG TREES - and are proud to do so. Although we are sometimes requested to supply older/bigger trees, the percieved advantages are outwighed by disadvantages! Older trees take longer to establish and will fruit no more quickly. The young trees we send out grow away and establish so quickly and healthily & often yield within 1 season of planting. Our customers even report fruits the first year of planting! All professional fruit growers prefer to plant young trees rather than older.
Our soft fruit bushes are usually 2 years old.
Everything is stringently graded, grown on the nursery and well packed!
We have in place very rigorous standards for the health, providence and uniformity of all our fruiting plants & trees. Our Nursery and the stock we grow is inspected and passported for health regularly by DEFRA experts [formerly the Ministry of Agriculture] and we have in place our own stringent controls and inspection programmes to ensure our fruiting bushes and trees are the best, most disease free stocks available and truly beyond compare.
We always propagate from certified stock where this exists and have the highest standards regarding providence and grading. If only the very best will do - as it should - then you can rely on a Chris Bowers fruiting plant to give the most exemplary results available. We firmly believe that only the very healthiest stock can and does produce vastly superior results - and it shows.
We are proud of each & every plant & tree we despatch from our Nursery. If it fails to thrive or live up to your expectations we will replace or refund it. This is in addition to your statutory rights. We may rarely ask for details of care and cultivation given to it, or arrange for a return of the item for inspection, to assist in our own programme of improvement.
