Victory is a Canadian plum, notable for its heavy yields and exceptionally large fruits. Eating quality is fair, and its firm flesh makes it useful for cooking and processing.

Victory is a semi-clingstone variety - the stone falls away fairly cleanly from the flesh.

How to grow

Victory is easy to grow. It ripens in late September in the northern states.

Victory was developed in the 1970s at the Vineland Research Station, near Niagara, Ontario, Canada. It is a cross between two other Vineland-developed plums, Valor and Vision.
