Jubilee versus Victoria Plum

Many people ask the question about Victoria plums being the best. Well there other contenders. Take the photo below, Jubilee plum on the left and Victoria on the right. The photo was taken on 8th August 2011, and it shows that Jubilee is far larger than Victoria, also Victoria is going to ripen about 1 to 2 weeks later. In good years Victoria can crop very heavily when compared. Taste wise I think Jubilee is reliably more sweet and juicy, whereas Victoria is less juicy and in bad years can be less tasty. Victoria can over produce, causing smaller fruit.
