Beach Plums

My Beach Plums are finally, after 4 years, starting to produce!!!! (they were just 6 inch sticks when I planted them!)

Don't let the small size full you!!!!  They are just as wonderful tasting as a regular plum... but smaller so you can eat a hand full!!!

They are shrubs, not trees like regular plums, and they like all kinds of soil, even the very sandy salty soil here at the shore.  So they are easy to manage and pick....

You can find them in Gurneys catalog, and a few others.... and they are just called "Beach Plums"! 

If you want a small shrub that produces massive amounts of fruit.... go for them!
