ABOUT OUR FRUIT

The Beach Plum
The Beach Plum is a native fruit that grows along the coastal communities from Maine to Virginia. Although sometimes mistakenly called berries, the Beach Plum is an actual plum with a pit or stone. It has a sweet tart flavor, can be eaten as fresh fruit or made into a food product such as jam, jelly or syrup.  

Recent studies done by Rutgers University found that the Beach Plum is as high in antioxidants as the Cranberry. It was also determined that the Beach Plum possesses antibacterial antigens, the same property in Cranberries that fights infection.

At Jalma Farms, we use the Beach Plum to produce our delicious jams and syrup. Jalma Beach Plum Jam and Syrup are low in sugar and high in quality. Jalma Farms is also actively committed to helping restore the Beach Plum to the Barrier Islands of the Jersey Shore, as a way to battle beach erosion and the effects of rising sea levels.


Black Aronia Berry
The Black Aronia Berry, sometimes referred to as the Black Chokeberry, is considered nature’s healer due to it’s extremely high level of antioxidants, fiber and other nutrients. Among it’s many “healing powers,” it is thought to improve blood circulation, balance blood pressure, support urinary tract health and boost the immune system.

Over the past several years, the Aronia Berry has seen a resurgence due to it’s “super fruit” status. At Jalma Farms, we have an orchard of over 10,000 Black Aronia Berry bushes, which produce a blueberry sized fruit that we harvest in late August.

Grown throughout the United States, Aronia Berries are naturally sweet but very low in sugar. Aronia Berries bushes are resistant to drought, insects and pollution, and are widely used in conservation efforts as they help to prevent soil erosion and manage wildlife habitat.
