Damson (Prunus insititia)

A deciduous tree that grows at a medium rate.
It is hardy to zone 5. It is in flower in April, and the fruits ripen in Sept / October. They are regarded as being self fertile.

The fruits tend to be more acidic than a plum but it is very acceptable raw when fully ripe, especially after being touched by frost. Very often used to make jams and preserves.

Shropshire Prune is believed to one of the original varieties bought back by the Crusaders from Damascus, in Syria.
