The Organic Shropshire Prune is known as the ‘Greengage of the Damsons’ and has been grown for a long time in Britain, it has a number of different names one being 'Westmorland Damson' which relates to the area where it is grown.

Unlike almost all other fruit trees, damsons, particularly the Shropshire Prune actually like a damp climate - so if you live in the north or west of the UK Shropshire Prune is definately a fruit tree worth considering. It has medium sized, long, oval blue black fruits with a good flavour and considered by many to be one the best of the Damsons. 

In terms of flavour, the Shropshire Prune is the essence of ‘plum’ versatile and excellent in both sweet dishes such as jams and jellies as well as savoury dishes such as chutneys and relishes. Also used to make a range of alcoholic drinks such as damson wine, damson liqueur and damson gin.

  • Shropshire Prune is a semi-clingstone fruit (the stone is not easily parted from the flesh)
