Q.Can A Santa Rosa Plum Tree Also Bear Other Kind Of Fruit?

Zone 94539 | 1998dracula added on August 19, 2021 | Answered

I have a Santa Rosa plum tree with great production for years. This year, after harvesting plums, it is now producing a fruit about the same size, but in yellowish green color and smells like peach. I am quite sure that it is not a plum. There are more than a hundred of them on the tree right now. Is this normal?
