Is one of the first trees to bloom in the spring. Flowers are often confused with the Bradford Pear tree that is common in our area. White flowers cover the bare branches (similar to a redbud) and are beautiful and fragrant. Sweet, edible plums are produced from June through September. These plums are small with a large pit, but have a very sweet, pleasant flavor. Leaves turn yellow in the fall and fall off during the winter.
