It was a good year for plums here in East Texas. Although sold as self fertile, I've found that plums benefit from a pollinator. Hence, we have a Methley and a Santa Rosa.

Together they produced about 15 gallons of fruit...not all of which ripens at the same time.

I make a "deal" with a wonderful lady who is expert at turning this delicious fruit into some of the best tasting jelly you have ever put on a biscuit. IMO, plum jelly is the highest and best use of this fruit...simply fabulous, better than grapes or any other I've tasted.
