Saw the beach plum thickets when I visited the Plum Island Animal Disease
Center, back around 2005 - much larger bushes than the  seedlings I got
from OIKOS had grown to be - but it was in Nov., so no fruit - and they
didn't just let you roam around the place, either.

I liked the fruit I got from my one - but the native P.angustifolia and the
Guthrie selection are more productive here.
