Two Trees ID Please

New Garden with two unidentified trees.

In some ways the two trees look similar, but they are different.  Any help much appreciated.

First Tree: Possibly a Plum?


Second Tree: Something different or just a different variety of plum?

    Yes first one looks like a plum. 
    The second one could be walnut, it would have a distinctive smell; if so, now is the time for pickling walnuts!

    Leaves for 2nd one not right for walnut.
    Could it be a damson or wild bullace?
  • Agree some sort of plum for the first one.

    Second possibly a greengage?


  • Thank you for the replies thus far.

    Googled images for Bullace, Greengage and Damson, all varieties of Plum.

    A few weeks back, we did consider Almond or Walnut for the second one.

    It is looking like they are both Plum trees, just different varieties.

    I'll have to wait a few more weeks to see if they ripen at all.

     Juglans regia...common name Walnut . Leaves are compound..one stalk several leaflets..see pics.
    Not seeing that in pics.

    Both mystery trees look to be in the plum/damson, greengage tree group.

    I was going by the stalk for the 'walnut'. Try taking off a fruit and see if there is a stone.
  • Sorry for the delay.

    The photo below shows (Left to Right), what is inside the fruit being formed.

    On the left the first smaller tree of the two with the larger fruit.

    On the Right the second larger tree of the two with the smaller fruit.
