Owner's comments

This tree behaves with its fruit like a gage/plum IE It grows its fruit inside the bush (hiding from birds ,the blossom is cream/white and appears march/april but later this year the fruit are light green but turn full purple when ripe but are apple shaped not egg shape fruit are sweeter than plums ,fruit very poor this year will upload pics when available
