It's 8 feet tall - he says it came up by itself - has a plum seed, very
very sweet to eat, some type of plum. He didn't bring a branch today, but
may take it to the extension agent - thanks for the input!

Re: [nafex] Identify fruit?

Looks too big for a beach Plum (though tough to tell scale)

The serrated leaves I believe put it in the Prunus family and the bark
looks very similar to cherry. It's too late in the season for cherry, I
believe. My guess is plum and very possibly Prunus americana.

Re: [nafex] Identify fruit?

All features (leaves, buds, bark, fruit) are out of focus... making definitive ID difficult for me...and there's nothing provided to give any indication of scale/size.
Bark, as best I can ascertain, is suggestive of Prunus... but the fruits look very much like a crabapple...
Differentiation between Prunus and Malus would be simple for the friend to accomplish. ... just cut or bite into a fruit... single stone/pit vs. multiple seeds.
