In Massachusetts South Dakota is sickeningly, candy sweet. Sometimes its sets decent numbers of fruit, which are almost always lost to insects [I don't spray plums, ever]. I'll be cutting South Dakota down this coming winter, anybody who wants scions, or carving wood, write me by January. I also think South Dakota's reputation as a good pollinizer is unfounded. Its a big tree, about 15 feet tall and as much across. It looks mostly like american plum, but is pure yellow.
> South Dakota is unusual , I like it but its not what you expect from a plum,
> its seems to lack sugar and acid but still, worht growing, I do look
> forwared to the early ripening fruits wit hthe non sour skin.
