Prunus - Fruit Trees

Prunus is a huge genus of trees and shrubs, which includes gorgeous spring-flowering trees but also tasty fruits such as plums, cherries, peaches, nectarines, apricots, and almonds. Although often grown for their fruit, these trees and shrubs are also very ornamental in spring when in full bloom, lovely in leaf, and a mouthwatering sight in fruit. Imagine how wonderful it will feel to pick the first plum, cherry, peach, nectarine, apricot of summer and eat it right under the tree!
