Our Ecos strain contains some of our best seedling selections known for their yield, and great fruit quality. These consistently produce clean fruit without disease year after year. Selected from individuals with sweet yellow and larger red or blue fruit that can be consumed fresh off the bush. Recommended if you are trying to create your own beach plum varieties or a small orchard. We have grown numerous generations from these individuals and find they produce much better quality fruits. Since pollination is a tricky issue with beach plum make sure you have at least two plants whether they are two of the same or two different strains. May cross pollinate a little with our Dunsbar plums too. Anyone can grow the beach plum and you do not need a beach.
*Ecos Beach Plum seeds also available
