Plum Tree Question

Zone Charlotte, NC | NINPOE added on May 30, 2016 | Answered

I looked through the Plum tree typical diseases and didn't see anything that may match. Some of the plums are fine but others have these brown spots on them. Any thoughts? A neighbor said it may have been due to an April frost or not enough nutrients.....Thanks.
