The link in the story had a typo.  Here is the correct link to the beach
plum growers guide:

Does anyone in NAFEX grow beach plums in an environment that is not near
the beach?

WILD fruit provide a tart treat 
from the(Dover) Delaware Capitol Review 
...She waded into thickets to gather the tiny, blue fruit.... A cold,
windy spring might strip the shrubs of blossoms before they can product
fruit.... <

Here's an excerpt from this story: 

        But Cornell University, the University of Massachusetts, and
Cape Cod Cooperative Extension have developed a guide that might help
farmers raise beach plums more successfully.

It is available online at beachplum.cornell.edu/bpguide, and suggests
soil conditions, plant spacing, and schedules for pruning and
fertilizing.
