Grow this one for both the taste and the fact that if you have problems with birds, the green ripe plums are left for you.

Comments: - The elders in my family have good things to say about when they had these back in the old days.  Not sure if I get enough chill up here on my hill in Inala, but willing to give it a go.  Started to bud up then stopped growing.  Below the graft started to sprout.  Sad to see this premium tree die.

Question: Aside from prune d'Agen, anyone know of a reliable pollinator?
