could anyone please identify this fruit ,i have the tree on my allotment with lots of the fruit on it ..wondered if it is edible, the fruit is about 3/4 of an inch in size .joan ..




This is a common one this year!

They are Myrobalan's or Mirabelle's in French. Over here we call them Cherry Plums, though they are not quite either. They are usually sweet enough to eat (depending on variety). The French bottle them in brandy!
