I have found a tree on the edge of my woods. I've noticed it blooming for the 10 years we've lived here but have never noticed fruit before.I think it's an American Wild Plum by what I could find on the internet. I also took it up to Prairie Restoration and the gal there said it looked like a American Wild Plum. I am sending some photos with this correspondence. Can you identify it for me...it is baring a lot of fruit and I am wondering if it is edible for humans.

Hi,

This does, indeed, look like wild plum. It is edible. Here is some interesting information about plums: http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=8&ved=0CFAQFjAH...
