Help identifying plum tree

Post by planetb » Tue Sep 16, 2014 5:30 am

I purchased a new home this summer that came with a couple small plum trees. The plums are starting to ripen as of mid-September in northern Montana. They're relatively small - the largest is about the size of a ping pong ball. Any idea what variety these are? Image

If the image doesn't load, you can go to I'm going to see how they turn out as preserves in the meantime.

Do they taste good?

It's not brookred or brookgold, or pembina or toka or mount royal.

5 down a zillion to go.

Try Youtube for directions on pruning.
