There is an old plum tree growing on the backside of my dad's property. It must be about 80+ years old as it was here when my dad got the place from his uncle. About 80-100 years ago there were kin folks living back there. It was a small community and the only things left as a reminder are old hearth stones and pieces of old wood stoves and other buried treasures. The plum tree makes fruit later in the season than regular plum trees. I don't know what type plum it is but it doesn't look like regular wild plums around here. Does anyone know about this type of plum and how I could propigate it. I keep hoping a sprout will come up from a seed. I am planning to put a fence around it so the cattle won't damage it. It is really nice to know that something one of my relatives planted years ago is still alive.
