These purple small round 3/4 to 1 inch diameter plums are tasty eaten fresh and make excellent jelly. Heavy loads of fruit form on wide bushy 10 foot tall trees in early summer. Trees are covered with beautiful white blossoms every spring. We find them growing along roadsides near our nursery and think the seeds were dropped by birds and naturalized. Fruit comes in several colors. Select another Roadside plum for pollination. USDA Zones 6-9, maybe hardier but we haven't tried them in other locations.
