I would think that it is probably a native plum such as Prunus besseyi (sand plum). They also list a Plum Berry variety that is actually a native Beach plum.

  Pardon my ignorance, but that's why I joined NAFEX to learn from all of you......  

  Hartmann's 2008 catalog lists Mini-Sweet Plum tree.  The text says its a high-quality sweet plum that ripens on 6-foot-high trees.  The picture shows only a clusters of little plums the look almost like big berries and some tree leaves.  My question:  is this really a plum or something else?

  I emailed Hartmann's inquiring about the botanical name of this tree, but they haven't answered.
