Seems a fungus has begun fruiting on my Stanley plum in the yard. Actually, looks like two different species of fungus by the looks of the shelf it's sending out the tree lenticels. On close inspection the bark looks green, but I found a couple holes the size of your finger and the wood inside is rotten. This fungal growth is almost from the ground up to 6 feet. Guess I gotta cut it down this spring. I first thought it was sapsucker pecks, but went out and sure enough decay fungus of some sort. Wasn't there last fall.  ::)

I found out what hits the leaves once in awhile to.

Pear Slug. It's actually a sawfly larva and is slimy like a slug in larval stage. Posted link in case someone might have it on their tree.

Is there available knowledge using Prunus americana var. nigra (P. nigra Wild Canada plum) as baseroot for other Prunus to get cold tolerance?

P. domestica's (common plum) in Finland, Europe can hardly seldom tolerate USDA 4 regions. P. nigra could extend this line up to USDA 2 regions for P. domestica, P. cerasifera and few other not so common species.

You might have to check USDA for that.

This spring I was by an old cemetery and along the wooded edge was a grove of Canada plum in blossom. I know where I'm headed in September. ;D

Would love to do same too, but do so I'd need 100 seeds and 15 years.  8)

That is some pretty jelly.  Looks like it has already been sampled.   :)

The benefits of being the jelly maker. You get to heavily sample what doesn't fit in the jar.

I never made it, but I sampled.  I added some to a dish of real black cherry ice cream to. :D :D We have 2 cups of  juice left that we will be putting in with the cranberry juice for jelly.  8)  ;D
