Edible sub-species of plum. Trees are self-fertile and yield heavy crops of small, oval fruit, pointed at one end. Despite being high in sugar, the fruit is also quite astringent and so is typically not eaten fresh. However it is great for jams, pastes, chutneys, sauces, wine and gin.
Damson trees grow in similar conditions to plums but are hardier to both cold and wind. In fact in England they have been used as windbreaks, either on their own or mixed with other species.
