Pollination of Victoria plum trees

Your Victoria plum tree is in flowering group 3. It is self-fertile and does not need a pollination partner, but fruiting will usually be improved if there is a compatible partner of a different variety nearby. The following varieties should pollinate this plum tree. (European plums, gages, damsons, cherry plums, mirabelles, bullaces will usually cross-pollinate if their flowering times overlap).

More advice about pollination

Please note that our whilst our system takes many relevant factors into account, it is certainly not completely accurate

Our article on the pollination of fruit trees gives more details of the factors involved in pollination.

Pollination between plum species

European Plums, Gages, Damsons, Bullaces, Mirabelles and Cherry Plums can usually cross-pollinate each other provided their flowering times overlap. However none of these species can cross-pollinate with Japanese Plums.
