DESCRIPTIONValor is a variety of plum, valued for its excellent flavour, suitable for direct consumption or dried. It enters into the fruiting period mid-early in the season and yields abundantly. The fruits are very large, with dark blue skin. The flesh is juicy, sweet and very tasty.
ADVICESThe tree is best planted in a sunny position, sheltered from the wind. The plant prefers sandy-clay fertile soil which is moderately moist. The optimum pH is in the range of 6,7-7,2.
To stimulate future growth the tree should be pruned in the first year immediately after planting. Formative pruning should be executed on the main stem, 20 cm above where the planned future branches will grow. The other branches should also be cut, reducing their length by one third. The best time to prune the plum tree is annually in the spring. Valor pollination requires the presence of other varieties flowering at the same time. Best results can be achieved by planting with varieties Cacańska Rodna, Węgierka Włoska, Stanley, Bluefree, Empress.
