My father's family grew up on the Eastern Shore in lower Delaware and I now have a cottage in nearby Maryland. Each year we anxiously awaited the ripening of the wild beach plums that grew all along the shore - and the jelly that my aunts always made after picking them. Now, of course, overdevelopment has caused them to disappear in many of their original areas, but luckily I still have several large bushes of them right beside my cottage. They are a pleasure to look at all year, have beautiful blooms, and oh, those delicious berries!
I have 34' on the beach in Sea Isle , and have been trying to find a source for beach plums. I would love to buy two small ones but can't find anywhere to purchase them. Please let me know of anyone in Cape May Co., N.J. who may have some for sale. Thank you
