    Hackberry, cherry, or something else. Tree is probably 20 feet tall or more. Purple-ish branches, leaves are 4-5" long and about 2" wide. Fruite is half inch.

    I have Hackberry on another part of the property a few hundred yards to the north. I didn't go up there to compare, but I recall those fruit being much smaller.

    Save me from digging out my tree book and tell me if I can eat this stuff...lol

    Yep Plum. I believe they get snow white when they bloom.

    Apparently, sometime between now and November. I have at lease 3 trees along the path to my garden so I'm keeping an eye on them. The trees are loaded right now with a lot of the fruit out of the reach of deer, so I'm optimistic I'll get some!
