Prunus salicina 67714-P
These tasty plums are weighing heavily on the branches of our three trees. There are hundreds of fruit on the ground but nobody seems to want to eat them! Don't we have possums, raccoons, whatever? I know foxes eat them; I've seen the evidence. It just seems odd that so much unutilized food is just out there on the ground waiting to rot.
