    Hello Everyone
    Hope all of you are having a relaxed long weekend with your families.
    I am not sure where to post my request. Hope it's in right place.
    I am in Keremeos. The fruit stalls and the trees I see here wants me to go for plant shopping.
    Could you please suggest me a plum and a peach tree variety that I could buy from here.I live in N.Vancouver. I have tasted a backyard grown yellow, juicy plum which was tasting very sweet. But I dont remember the name. I am leaving tomorrow. Would be nice if you could suggest me few varieties.
    Thank you.
    Meg.

    I don't remember the name but you can actually buy it. Isn't plum and pitch looks the same? What's the different is the colour and maybe the size

    Meg,
    We had a Mount Royal plum in Calgary (until a wet snow storm broke it off). It was prolific with large, juicy and delicious plums. The best news is that it is self fertile. You won’t need a pollinator, which is an issue with other plums.
    I have postings of it, with photos, elsewhere on the forum.
