Yellow Plum – Looking Forward to Summer!

I don’t hold out hope to identify the individual varieties of fruit trees we have, but I would love to add more of these plum trees. I only got one (yes, one!!!) plum off of the tree because most of them turned dark purple and fuzzy and dropped from the tree. The flavor was sweet, florally, citrusy, and wonderfully juicy.

The tree is at the edge of the forest, but it looks like it’s just the overgrowth. We have just removed (what we believe to be) an Autumn Olive so the plum will get more sun.

Any one know what type of plum we might have?
