The wife of our branch manager in Reno, Nevada has the most wonderful orchard that she cultivates in their yard! When I was there last month, she proudly showed me these plums, which by now are probably perfectly ripened! There is almost nothing that thrills me more then the sight of fruit growing on the trees! These were beautiful, with a shimmering, cloudlike shading against their green flesh. She said that they were a specific sort of Japanese plum with a gentle and sweet flavor. This is when I wish that i could be several places at once!
