Plum Tree - Damson

Hardy Purple Plum


The Damson ,(Prunus domestica subsp. insititia, or sometimes Prunus insititia) is a small  plum native to Great Britian. Damson plums are one of the most popular old varieties in America.


The Damson plum has a purple skin over a small, oval, yellow fleshed fruit, and is good for canning and preserves because of its' an astringent, spicy, tart flavor.


 Damsons are used for cooking, jam & wine making. A hardy tree, largely untroubled by pests and diseases. Damsons succeed where most plums would fail.


They are semi-shade tolerant and they grow to 12-14 ft. They make good windbreaks and hedges, though they are not likely to fruit well if they are very exposed. Damsons are mostly self-fertile and cross-pollinate with plums.
