I thought this was a really cool picture of some very old and unique plum varieties from 1909, illustrated by Alois Lunzer.

Some of these varieties have already been mentioned above in the coments!

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.
