Dr. Gus Tehrani's research program at Vineland, ON has developed a number of promising European type plums. Victory, in particular, has gained a following since being released in 1992. It is a cross of Vision and Valor- two earlier Vineland varieties that are still being planted commercially. Large, attractive, heart-shaped fruit is very dark violet-blue with exceptionally high quality, firm greenish-yellow flesh. Not only is it ideal for canning and drying-several prominent plum personalities, including Bob Purvis and Dr. Jim Cummins, count Victory as one of their favorite fresh eating fruits. The tree is late-blooming, precocious, and productive.
