Plums

Missus bought two plum seedlings two years ago...
Santa Rosa and 'O-ishiwase'...
Like apples and pears, they belong to the rose family...
Flowers are pretty, like sakuras...
This fruit was ripe on the tree...
Birds came by to peck on the skin...
 Another fruit on the O-ishi, with a companion... 

The size was slightly bigger than a ping-pong ball...
Quite small by commercial standards... about 50 grams?
But the taste... ummm...
Absolutely crunchy, juicy, and delicious...
