I live zone 7, southernI live zone 7, southern Oregon. We have a purple flowering plum tree (cherry plums) that are dark red/purple. I am not sure WHEN to pick. Some have fallen to the ground with the wind and our tree is just loaded! Should I wait another week at least or go ahead and pick away? I will be making jam mostly, but eating lots too!! Thank you! I've tried to find info on when exactly to pick, but I'm seeing some say July and others say August. Thank you. I appreciate any suggestions!
