Description:

I looked for wild plum and found only yellow ones listed as cherry plums and have come to the conclusion that this is very confusing they look like my image 4
Image one is of a tree that ripens in September with yellow fruit that tastes like apricots, Image 2 is of a tree that has fruit that ripens early August and is like an apple in appearance with varied markings, the remaining images are of what i would have called cherry plums and ripen mid August some turning the same color as Victoria plums. All but image one just taste like plums and make good jams and preserves. The first one makes a good apricot gin. They all have typical Prunus blossom in spring.
They are on lime soil planted as if they were once supposed to be a hedge.

Prunus

Prunus is a complicated genus with hybrids and varieties, etc, etc. Just enjoy the fruits and don't worry what they are! We had a feast of yellow ones last Sunday.
