These plants are on Long Island. Will get back some time for more photos. Tons of fruit but already fermenting on the bushes.

Beach plum makes suckers. After about 3-4 years our plants are sending up more and more suckers. We dug one up of our superior clone and gave to so they could propagate and sell it.
