I am studying different types of plum trees, but
nursery catalog descriptions are inconsistent. I
know my kids would eat the red ones that are tart. Anyone have any growing in your back yard
like this and what kind are they?

Hi W.S.55,
They grow wild in my part of the country. In fact, I have to mow them down with the Bushog or they kinda take over. In the old days, the folks would make plum jelly and it was o.k., but we had other fruit that beat it by a mile. I still have my mama's fig bushes that grow the large figs. Mama would peel the figs (yep peel) and make the most wonderful fig preserves you ever put on a hot biscuit. Once for a church fund raising, mama gave the church 12 pints of her fig preserves. When daddy found out, he went right down there and bought back all 12 pints. He kinda liked them too. Good luck.
