I know there have been a couple of threads on this, but I’d like to collect a list of ALL the yellow plums/pluots. I tasted a handful of different plums the last couple of seasons. I am now convinced that all those years of eating mangoes in my younger days has hardwired my brain into liking yellow colored plums. I want to seek out all the yellows out there. Starting with this list, let me know whats missing
Emerald Drop pluot (best so far, knocked my socks off with floral scent and sweet)
Flavor Queen (yellow when over-ripe)
Splash (more orange but still counts)
Sorriso di Primavera
European Plums (its not clear if I have enough chill for Euro plums but worth testing):
Byrongold,(Wickson,greenish yellow),La Crescent,Brook Gold and (Lavina,which are yellow most of the time and then get a reddish blush.)
Also Schoolhouse,Oullins Gage,Pearl,General Hand,Coe’s Golden Drop and Yellow Egg.
I thought I found the identity of this plum a few months ago, but I can no longer find the info. Google search results seem to be getting less relevant with time. I thought I read it was a Zaiger variety, but can not find a matching yellow plum with size, Brix, and lenticels.
I really appreciate this thread. I had lost the tag from a yellow plum tree that I bought 2 years ago. I couldn’t remember the name and it was really bothering me! Reading through the list here jogged my memory, it’s a Byron Gold! Here’s another thread that the OP might be interested in:
Thats a good list to start with Unfortunately, it is too late in the year to get scions locally. I counted about 9 that I have or grafting this season. I will try more next season. Shot in the dark - any Eastern growers with Sorriso di Primavera? Let me know
I bought Peach Japanese Plum from Cloud Mountain Nursery last year and it supposed to have an apricot yellow colored plum, not sure if that counts. I bought it last year and it’s grown a lot since then. No plums on it yet though but whatever year I get them I will post a picture. I have another Peach Plum tree that I bought from the local farm store but it had no description other than a picture which is not the same as the peach plum from Cloud Mountain. The farm store one looks like it might have European style leaves (the only comparison I have is a gage green tree which leaves look similar to the farm store Peach Plum). The Cloud Mountain trees leaves look different. They look the same as my other Asian plums leaves so I’m sure it’s Asian. Besides Cloud Mountain said it was. It is supposed to be a big yellow plum!
