Native Plum tree
« on: May 04, 2018, 07:39:03 PM »
  I planted a couple native plum seedlings about 5 years ago.  They bloomed good this year and it looks like I may get my first fruit off of them.

  I picked my plums today, about 4 1/2 pounds.  Even the real ripe ones are pretty tart.  Going to try some jelly.

According to the way I learned addition you got 5 pints.

Just kidding with you. I make lots of typos.

They look a lot like what we call Sugar plums but they would be candy sweet.

I am sure you will enjoy those jars of jelly this coming winter.

 Thanks Maggie. It's hard to tell but those 2 in the front are half pints.  Hopefully, this year was not a fluke and they will continue to produce in the future.
