I have an old plum treeI have an old plum tree (don't know how old it is), but it produces tons of wonderful fruit. This year however, it broke off about to half the size from the weight of the fruit, plus the fruit is not fully ripe. Will the fruit rippen if I pick it? How can I get the fruit to rippen? The broken branch is now starting to die. The tree was there when we bought the property so I don't even know what kind of plum they are.
