A very heavy and reliable cropping variety producing blue-black fruits with a sublime flavour. Sweet enough to eat fresh from the tree, the fruits are also perfect for pies, jams, bottling and wine making.

  • Season of use September.
  • First introduced 1820, Kent, UK.
  • Self Fertile - but pollination by another damson, gage or plum will maximise yield.
  • Grown on St Julien A rootstock for an ultimate (un-pruned) height of 12 - 15 feet (3.65 - 4.6 metres) but can easily be kept at a height of 6 - 8 feet (1.8 - 2.4 metres).
