Hybrid Beach Plums
Originally these were rows of plum hybrids developed on Eastern Sand Plums from the eastern coast of the U. S. They now form a solid hedge with the blackberries. These kinds of plums are tiny and edible, very sweet, great for jams. The larger plums in here were developed on the Japanese Plum.
The hybrids are low, spreading and bushy, typical of the East Coast Beach Plums, and very drought-tolerant. They can withstand adverse conditions like being covered with sand dunes.
