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 thewy 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..
