West Lothian, United Kingdom
I've a teenage victoria plum (15ft high) that has it would seem set every flower of a copious spring blossoming. It is absolutely loaded.
There will be the 'June Drop' but it's impact I suspect may be slight. The boughs are already drooping. When do I go in and do a major cutting out of excess fruit to reduce damage to the tree, improve the quality of the fruit and ensure that next year isn't totally barren.
At least I can do a proper prune of the tree without any conscience of lost fruit.
