Sorry. I had to wait until it was less hot to go outside and pick these to compare.
I chose two of the same size and you can see that they are nearly identical in look. Both taste very good. When I closed my eyes, I couldn’t tell which one I was eating.

Neither images nor descriptions exactly match what I have.
I bought two “Emerald Beaut” with the DWN tag from Bay Laurel. The fruits are supposed to be a little pointed at the bottom The one in shade had less fruits and none this year. The one under the sun is loaded every year.
The “Emerald Drop” with the DWN tag from Bay Laurel have some fruits each year. The fruits are supposed to have green skin.
It maybe a case of polllinating variation. I have many pluots and plums. I know that the Splash fruits each year can be different in shape and taste, based on what is blooming at the same time, which is unpredictable.
I like the so called “Emeald Beaut” because this tree has a lot of fruits which can be much bigger, and last a long time on the tree. We got the first one on 8/1, and still have a lot more on the tree.
