need to be aware that Victoria plums seem to ripen simultaneously, so you get the whole crop in the space of a couple of weeks - they are also very attractive to wasps so you may find them filled with wasps as you go to pick them - and covered wasps if they have fallen to the ground. We had to remove ours, despite the fruit being absolutely delicious, because of the wasp danger near young children.
I would go for a greengage - the most delectable of all plums and almost impossible to find in the shops in England.
I do have a dula pear tree though - williams on one half and doyenne de something on the other - really delicious and juicy,
