Just curious if anyone else is using these plums for fedges or for fruit in general....i recently was gifted some myrobalan cherry plum seed and was trying to research this tree but have not found a considerable amount of info on the plum tree...i would like to know how flavourful it is and how cold tolerant it is ive never had one and would love to see how it works out.

These grow nicely in my Zone 7 area -- they do very well in wet areas.  The fruit is tastes pretty good and is a heavy producer.  As a hedge it is easy to bend, puts on fast growth, and is a little thorny - probably a good fit!
