Hi
I moved into a new house a couple of years ago and for the first time a tree has some yellow-red fruit. They are about the size of a grape and look like mini plums.
Any ideas what they are and if they are safe to eat?

Welcome!

Could you cut one of the fruits open and show us what's inside?

Could you take a photo of the leaves and another of the whole tree?

Did you see it bloom? Can you describe the flowers?

I agree More pictures will be helpful.


I can't really tell by the picture, do they look like cherries to you? They look sort of like Rainier cherries which are available fresh at the market right now here in the US.

A friend saw the pictured a thought they might be Rainer Cherries or Chickasaw plums, but wasn't sure.

Finally managed to get some more pictures, hopefully they'll be clearer.

Sure looks like cherry to me! Smiling Rainier is considered by some (including my husband) to be the best cherry you can get.
