    I can find my camera so I can't take a pic but let me explain and maybe someone can help me.

    We have 2 trees that bear friut, they are about the size of a quarter, one tree has red one's and one is yellow. They only come out everyother year. I know their not cheeries or crab apples but have on idea what they are. They have smooth skin and look like a small plum on the inside.

    I'm going to see if I can find my camera today so I can show a pic then you all can tell me what to do with them.

    Do they have a single seed inside the flesh like a plum?

    What do the leaves look like? what planting zone are you?
     
  4. They sound like wild plum trees. They make wonderful jam. We used to pick them by our roadside...now, the county SPRAY'S everything and Kills it all back.

    Yeah what is with that?! This road side spraying and killing of everything all the time with counties? What do they think they are doing? controlling weeds and bugs? They are just making them more resistant each year and chasing the bugs out into people's gardens, farmer's crops and people's homes!!! Grrrrrrrr​

    I agree with wild plum. I'd love to find some and make jam. How far into PA are you? [​IMG] [​IMG]
