Horizontal Cocoplum can be hard to get a hold of, but it’s worth it if you’d like to use a salt tolerant cocoplum that can be kept more compact and even trained to trail downward. This is the cocoplum that should be used on dune plantings. This natural coastasl variety has a larger, whitish pink fruit and is probably best used for a loose hedge, groundcover or mass planting. Mammals eat the fruit and the plant provides wildlife with good cover in a coastal setting that can otherwise be very sparse. Caribbean, Central American and Columbian people do make pudding from Cocoplum fruits.
