    What are these? The leaves look like apple leaves but the fruit looks like a big yellow plum. Some sort of Asian fruit?

    • MaryJane says:

      We call them coyote plums. They grow wild here. They are about the size of a big quarter. When you first pop them into your mouth and bite down they’re sweet but around the pit they’re a tad sour so you spit that out and pop another one in:)

    These look beautiful. Are they big enough to use for jam or anything?

    • MaryJane says:

      You know, I’ve never done a thing with them other than nibble on them whenever I walk by a tree, but I think they’d work up like any other plum for jam and things.

    My naughty dogs ADORE these (and every other type of plum that they can inhale). I have an ancient orchard nearby and the pair sneak off constantly to eat as many as they can before they get busted!!
