Anyone ever got fruit off of a Citation peach/plum rootstock

Hey all,

I got a Baby Crawford peach on Citation rootstock last season... Well - the Baby Crawford graft didn't make it, but the Citation rootstock kept on growing....

Now - I have a citation rootstock with flower buds on it.... and it is going to try to do something this season if it doesn't get killed by late season freezes.....

It is supposedly a Peach/Plum hybrid.... Growth habit so far reminds me of an American plum - suckering all over the place.... but it sure is healthy!

Anyone ever get fruit off of one of these things? What's a peach/plum taste like anyway?

If I get fruit - I will post back here how it comes out.
