    Dreadful plum, tasteless, mealy texture, wasps absolutely love it, the birds are also suckered by the bright yellow fruit. makes a fairly good jam but very clingstone and the skins are thick so at least some need to be skimmed off. DO NOT believe what the nuirserymen say about this plum.

    What I am looking for is a delicious, juicy, eating variety that doesn't take much experience to grow. I live in western SC (zone 7b). The land is certified "organic". Can you help me? Thanks DC
