Jubilee [syn ‘Jubileeum’] is a superb recent introduction from Sweden that combines hardiness, fruit quality and self-fertile flowering to a marked degree. Described as the ideal garden Plum tree and our best--selling variety. The results achieved with Jubilee and always first class. Recommended highly.
