Beach Plum

Prunus Maritima

Beach Plums are native to the northeastern US along the coast. Adaptable, we've grown them for years at the nursery. Fruits are tart and many, used in jams and jellies. The white profuse flowers bloom later than European, American, and Japanese plums. So, they escape late frosts and are usually not a host for plum cucurlio. They have finished their egg laying cycle by the time the beach plum sets its fruit. They also are free of brown rot fungus on the fruits. Plants are shrubs 6' tall and wide. They require little maintenance and are long lived. Zones 5-7
