Also known as Shropshire Damson. It is the best flavoured of them all. It is excellent for preserving, bottling or freezing. Not suitable as a dessert plum. If well pollinated  and not overcropped, it will produce regular crops. The trees are not very big and suitable for gardens. Harvesting late September.
