I'm just south of Jackson, MS. What's a short to medium good plum tree for this area? I like the ones that are almost golf ball size.

Sorry, I don't have an answer for you. Just wanted to say that I live in Ms. about an hour south of you. MSU has a very good website that you should check out. It has lots of information about things that grow well in our state.

Here is a link that might be useful: MSU

I have AU plumbs, really good choices for humidity, although mine has fallen over in all the rain (it's small, hubby will set it straight this weekend!) it's SMOTHERED in fruit! So cute!

Thanks girlgroupgirl. I researched and found AU and Methley were supposed to be the best around here. Now to find them.
