2nd Generation!

Well, this is pretty exciting…. Its the first flower formed from one of the seeds I planted. My beloved Laetitia plum seedling. Grown primarily to shade the trout because it gets hot here in the Hawkesbury (NW Sydney). I’m curious to see if the fruit develops true to type or if it is a hybrid, creating something completely different. I have another tree, a nectarine which was a chance seedling that produces pink fleshed nectarines. Perfectly sweet, large and juicy. To date I haven’t ever seen another pink-fleshed nectarine. Anyway, back to the plum – if I get fruit, I’m going to keep the seed of course. Does anyone else have any favourite seedling fruit trees?img_3612
