Description

May also be trained on walls and grown as pyramids. Damsons will often crop heavily in soils and positions where larger plums fail, producing abundant rich fruits used for cooking or preserves. Most varieties are very similar and partially self-fertile, yielding well if planted on their own.

As with all trees from the prunus family, the leaves will start to appear autumnal and slightly shabby from mid July onwards. This is not a disease, but is mainly due to this years contrasting weather conditions and will not affect the performance of the tree.

 

Pollination:

Self-fertile

fruiting will usually be improved if there is a compatible partner

Pollinators:

Cambridge Gage, Czar, Mirabelle de Nancy, Opal, Victoria
