Once upon a time, there was a plum tree. It grew in the backyard of a weird and wacky family.
It grew tall and wide with big, green leaves. It provided shade in the summer and nothing in the winter.
Yet, year after year, this plum tree never produced one, single plum.
Until one day, it produced 10,000 nectarines.
Apparently the plum tree wasn't a plum tree after all.
(I am sure there is a moral to this story somewhere.)
