Name this Plum!

I have a feeling I'm going to be participating in this forum quite a bit in the coming months. :)

So here is a plum tree that bears LOTS of fruit. However, I can't identify the type of plum. The fruit is small and very tart. It has a gorgeous red/golden flesh which makes a beautiful jam.

My best guess is perhaps a Chickasaw plum but I'm nowhere near confident in that. Can anyone identify this plum? This photo shows them not quite ripe (seems they have a small window for harvesting)

Thanks! (more pictures below)

Try the fruit tree forum if you don't get an answer. There are a couple guys on there that have grown every plum there is.

I believe this variety is "please give me some it looks delicious"

Is this why your screen name includes the word "Desire"?

Haha! They are indeed delicious! The jam I made from it has been my favorite so far.

I hope it produces lots again this year... I had to burn a large brush pile nearby and it singed one side of it. Seems like there are plenty of small fruits starting though so it should be ok.

It is just driving me crazy that I don't know what kind of plum it is... I've never seen any so small. I did cross post in the fruit forum (thanks for that suggestion) but no responses as yet.
