Anyone know where I can buy a decent variety of plum tree i.e Victoria or similar ?  I bought one on spec and the fruit was terrible (small and hard).

The lady in the warehouse at the back of Soldebre had a variety of fruit trees when I was there last week.  Not sure what she had in the plum department though.

Thanks Fishman.  I had heard about the outlet outside the market but didn't know when they were there.

Thanks Cariad.  They look more like what I'm after.  Whereabouts near SB are you ?  I'm half way between SB and Freginals (on campo).

I am in Freginals nearer to Ventalles.The growers are usually here every day .They  have every kind  of fruit tree.From SB don't take 1 st turnoff for Freginals turn left by Ventalles go over railway and motorway bridge then turn left. On that road on your right you will see the trees.They have several plantations in the area.
