This is the flowering stage of indigenous wild plum. It is very showy in mid spring. The flowers attractbpollinators that come and feed off the nutritious nectar and then the fruits begin to appear by mid to late June. The fruits look a lot like cherries at first glance. Then they begin to morph from green to yellow to purple fruits. They are mostly pit and a small amount of fruit meat. But they are well worth picking and perhaps processing in a bowl to get the fruit and pits separated in order to make fruit leather or jelly. This tree is goundvthroughout the Pacific Northwest Coast and is a vital food plant to several coastal indigenous peoples.
