I've got 2 of these trees and the only bud grafts remaining are: 1st tree has only a plum leaf and bears smaller purple with a hint of green plums. The 2nd tree is primarily a plum, which I think it resembles a Methley plum (purple stone free skin) and the other remaining branch is definitely an Apricot.

Is there a site or literature somewhere that states the "Types" of bud grafts that are on these trees ? Bought it from DirectGardening.
Directgardening should have that information somewhere. try calling or searching a web site. ;)
Seen that. All they brag about is Peaches, Plums, Apricots and Nectarines, not what kinds.
The first picture, I believe represents a Green Gage plum. The 2nd one is still a mystery, however not sure of the flesh color yet. The skin on the 2nd picture will get a medium purple with light yellow pin sized spots on it.

Ahhh. Put their customer service dept to work. They should have to disclose that info I would think. Maybe not though. Keep us posted I would like to see if they even know.
A phone call to DirectGardening produced the following: More confusion !

With the plum grafts: 4 possibilities: Stanley, Superior, Methley, & Ozark plums.

It depends on the pictures you find relating to that type. My first picture resembles an Ozark and the other could be a Superior.

They may change the bud grafts every year and confirmed that's a possibility.
Ahhhh! I figured you would get some sort of confusing answer. But at least you have a starting point to find out for sure.
Thanks for posting!
If all else fails maybe your local horticulturist or University Dept of horticulture could answer your question.
