Cherries or Plums?

Despite how much they look like cherries the fruit in this photo are actually plums! We have found several plum trees growing in our back paddock! A couple have ripened to red and others have ripened to yellow. If anyone could tell us what type of plums these are that would be great!

Plums picked from the trees in our back paddock
  We have soooo many! Some friends have picked bucket loads and there are still more to pick! I've stewed some for dessert tonight! Beautiful! I didn't over sugar them as I love the slightly sour flavour. I think this weekend I'll pull out the preserving kit that my mother-in-law has lent me and see if I can successfully preserve some!
Stewed plums, yum!
