Allegheny or American (Marsh) Plum?

Uploaded by: peebers

Sunday September 5, 2010


Caption: On a recent hike I came across a small tree just inside a wooded area adjacent to an open field. I did a bit of research and have found that the fruit is that of a wild plum but, I am unable to determine if it is an American (Marsh) Plum or an Allegheny Plum. The fruits are about 1" in diameter so I'm guessing the American variety. Anyone out there know?

Don't know; my book says there are 16 species of wild plums in the eastern 2/3 of the US. Good to eat, though!

I would guess American Marsh due to the coloring. Allegheny Plums are described as small and dark purple with yellow flesh.
