New York's beach plums


It will be hit or miss. Purple is hit, green is miss.

We are on our way to find beach plums (Prunus maritima). I took careful note of some promising subjects in the spring. With the season skipping anything from 2-10 weeks ahead of schedule I am hoping that we find them on their way to ripeness.

And then?

Jam, yes, gin, yes, crumble, yes, perhaps even... But I must not get ahead of myself.

Think purple thoughts.
