An Agricultural Fruiting tree

Post by MWP admin » Wed Nov 14, 2007 10:12 am

This is an agricultural fruiting tree, most probably a stone fruit tree (Rosaceae) which is not the Almond (Prunus dulcis). Is it some Peach/Plum etc?

Probably showing this to a farmer would reply at once, but there are no farmers here. What attracted my eye is the fact that the flower have 2-3 pistils joined together. I am always used to one central pistil.

It's a plum alright, but as to the exact type, yellow, red, whatever, as you say it will have to be a farmer! That is if there is sufficient difference in the leaves etc.
