I planted a "Stanley" plum last year that was really as sweet as a prune when perfectly ripe. Great aroma, juicy, but way too sweet for fresh eating. (It could just be me as I like a little tang in my sweet) It is self-fertile and has survived 2 winters. I know the squirrels love the plums but I gotta find ways to use them as I thought it was going to be more of a fresh eating plum, not a prune.
