Plum tree for NJ (Zone 6) with deer?
Hello. So I have a tree that fell over and now thinking of replacing it with a plum tree. My house backs up to a forest with deer. My guess is any plum tree will have deer problem so I'll have to deal with that. BUt my main question is can anyone recommend a plum tree with sweet fruit that looks like a grocery store plum (I understand those are japanese plums). (My kids are 5 and younger and love plums... not sure how they would take to a plum which doesn't resemble a grocery store plum... although I did get them to eat heirloom tomatoes which don't look normal).
My biggest concern is for a plum tree that will withstand our NJ winters.
