We were blessed with an early Springtime day yesterday, here in Mallorca. The sun was out all afternoon reaching 18° C in Llucmajor and even 21° C in Sa Pobla, I am told. Fruit trees are beginning to blossom now as is this prune tree, a cherry plum of the Prunus cerasifera kind, Pisardi variety (Ciruelo de Pissard). One can find plum trees with pink flowers or those with white to rose-coloured flowers. When ripe, the fruit is red, yellow or of a reddish-yellowish shade and will be ready for eating from late May to mid-June. Yumms.
