Re: [nafex] Nanking pollinating Jap/Am plums?

I wonder if the confusion over this came about because of the bush cherries
developed by the late Professor Meader.  Jan, Joy, and Joel are from a cross
of Prunus japonica x P. jacquemontii and they look and taste just like pie
cherries, but they are plums, botanically.  They are graft compatible on
plum and WILL pollinate Japanese and American type plums that bloom at the
same time.
Nanking cherry, (P. tomentosa) can cross with some plums, but not well
enough to be a pollinator - it would be a rare occurance.
