Sam,

Thanks for the info on self-sterility of Elephant Heart.  I had lots of blossoms
for the first time this year.  I would have hand-pollnated if I knew it was ss.

If mine really is an Elephant Heat, it bloomed much later than Methley and Early
Golden (other Japanese plums). In fact it bloomed with Italian Prune, Bradshaw and
Victoria!!

Hope I get at least one El Heart plum so I can confirm its identity.

: Most of my fruit trees are less than 10 years old so there is not a lot
: of production yet.
: Methley and Shiro seem to be doing ok.
: Elephant heart trees grow well but they are the first to bloom and are
: self sterile so I have not gotten many plums. What I have gotten are
: very good. I am hoping that my other early bloomers will get to work on
: the Elephant heart soon..
