Need help identifying this plum.. Wild?
I need some help with this plum. I live in southern CA in a canyon and down by the creek there is several of these... plums? They are old trees, perhaps only 15' tall and the most striking feature is the stems of the fruit and the stems of the leaves are red. Fruit is small, bright red and unripe they are astringent as all get out, ripe they are super sweet. The neighbor who has the property says there used to be a yellow form which died awhile back. Tree does not have thorns. Does anyone know what this it? I am thinking of starting some of them. I am told they make excellent jam and wine.
