    I have a rootstock bush which I think is coming up from a dead minarette type victoria plum, I certainly didn't plant it. It is producing similar sized rounded fruit but they are green and sweet. I thought it might be a bullace but greengage might be more likely. 

    I also have a rootstock plum which started out as a minature peach or nectarine. The fruit are a similar size to Victoria plums and are quite edible.

    The Shepherds Bullace
    has greenish fruit which ripen to a pale yellow with a pinkish blush ... more like a Victoria plum.

    Looks like St Julian A rootstock fruit but it may be Pixy as I think that is what is used for Minarette trees now.
