IF you are open to an apple substitute, one of the red-fleshed can be quite ornamental and smaller: For instance, Winekist and Redfield both have lovely blossom and bloom among the earliest of apples - near the time of plums.

Both are not too hard to find in your area.
Someone else must recommend a resistant plum, which is beyond my experience,
