If you've been to an East Coast beach, in particular along the coast of New England, you're probably familiar with these, beach plums. Beach plums are stone fruits, related to other plums, like cherries and peaches. Plants bloom sometime in May with white or pink flowers in mid-May, later than most other stone fruits, and then mid-to-late summer, they produce fruits that are reddish to deep purple with a waxy bloom. They are quite acid with a crisp, tart, juicy flesh and cherry-like pit, and can be substituted for cherries or plums in recipes. They can be used to make jams and jellies. I’ve never done it, but I bet they’re pretty good. I took this picture while walking with my friend Sarah when we did a day trip to Rockport, Massachusetts.
