I was at a super market a few days ago, and they had Lemonplums. There yellow from the outside and taste like plums, there really sweet. I live in Florida (Zone 9B)If plums don't grow here, and citrus grows good, can Lemonplums grow in Florida?

What you tasted was a 'Pershore Yellow Egg' plum. It is a European plum cultivar and has no relation to actual lemons. It is simply an interesting true plum. Sorry, but they won't grow in Florida.
