Plum mystery solved?

5 years ago

After 9 summers in my current home, I finally got enough plums on my 2 mature trees to identify the fruit (I think). In previous years fruit set was very poor and a lot of what did set was dropped prematurely due to plum curculio. This year with pollenizing help from some wild plum branches (using the "bottle-feeding" method shared in an old post by Konrad), and a couple of sprays of Permethrin, I got more plums than I knew what to do with. First 3 pictures are taken approx July 15th when we had a heavy wind storm and a lot of fruit dropped.
