Spring Satin Plumcot.


#144

Lavina plum


#145

First time seeing this color plum flowers. How does it taste?


#146

It tastes very good and aromatic. However, now I am not sure what it is. Mine has skin more red but the pic I saw had yellow skin with red blush.

Whatever it is it is a keeper.


#147

Thanks I have added to my list.


#148

I had five Lavina flowers on last year graft. One set fruit rest fell off.


#149

How did you like the plum?

#153

This is on one of two trees inside the electric fence so I’m very likely to taste it. Unless birds decide to give me trouble. I’m sure they will so I have to cage the single fruit I think.

#157

Took these pictures yesterday after rain !


#158

All these pictures are getting me excited for everything to start greening out and bloom. I just hope most of it isn’t killed in the coming few nights of cold weather :man_facepalming:


#159

Hope for the best. Our forecast is above freezing for next ten days but sometime it can go below.

My Flavor Supreme fruit set seems excellent this year, I hope they don’t all drop over the next couple of months… It seems pollination was not a problem. All my pluots set very well, the lightest is probably Emerald Drop, which is in the process of being topworked.
