Hi Laura,

I know what you mean about plum but the fruit is only growing in large clusters only at the ends of branches.  The leaves do remind me of an Evergreen Plum but our plums have always seemed to spread the fruit out over the branches in ones and twos.  Also, we did not notice the  flowers and plum trees are pretty showy.  We will let them continue to ripen and see what happens in a month or so.  I'll let you know what we find out then.

Thank you for your suggestion.  It is going down as #1 on my list.

Well Jan, I feel like I'm looking at a plum tree, but it's hard to make out some details, such as the leaf edges in your closeup. If they're serrated, your mystery tree could in fact be a plum. Do you live in an area where plums would grow? Hmmm.....one way to tell for sure -- let fruit ripen, eat. :)

Hi All,

I know that we usually "talk iris" but I have a couple of mystery trees growing on my hill and would like to see if anyone can help me to id them.  

We are clearing brush for the fire season and never noticed them before.  Probably because they look so ordinary and we never saw the fruit as it is the same color as the rest of the tree.

They are about 8 to 10 feet tall and currently have the fruit on them.

I am posting a photo of the tree and a closeup of the leaves and fruit.  All suggestions welcome.  At least it will provide a starting point for an ID.

Thanks so much,

Jan in Chatsworth
