In the past few cottage gardens would have been without a damson fruit tree, for the fruits make a first rate jam and can be made into 'damson cheese' or a superb wine. Damson Merryweather is especially good in exposed or very wet locations, producing a fine crop of large blue/black fruits where many plums would not flourish. The damsons yellow flesh is both tart and juicy. Damson Merryweather is a self fertile fruit tree.
Growing your own fruit trees is incredibly rewarding and the taste of the fruit picked is truly delicious- fresh, tangy and nutritious.
