I am in Portland, Or. and looking for either a Mirabelle plum or shiro plum tree. Does anyone know where I can find?

You can find Shiro about anywhere… but as a longtime HOS member, inspired early by Jim Gilbert of One Green World, I’d suggest them for the Mirabelle plum: http://www.onegreenworld.com//advanced_ ... ef&x=9&y=9

And the Shiro as well: http://www.onegreenworld.com//advanced_ ... &x=13&y=11

I agree that One Green World is a great place to buy the plum trees, but its unfortunate that it seems that OGW got a bit sloppy with the photos. That doesn't look like a mirabelle to me and doesn't match their description.

On a related rant, I wish nurseries would make it clear when they were showing a picture of the actual variety in question rather than a stock photo of the type of fruit. I'm sure many buyers are swayed by the picture when choosing variety and in many cases the picture they are looking at isn't even of the variety described.

Even better if they had pictures of their own trees on the rootstock in question (I know it isn't practical, but at least they could be transparent about what they are actually showing).

I have bought plum trees from the One Green World and it's a great place.
