This small, fruit has a lovely blue flush to the skin, is high in sugar & though they can be quite sharp to taste.

There are myriad of different ways to use this stunning little fruit from sauces, compotes, jams, jellies, chutneys, pies, tarts, crumbles & ice-cream.

Did you know that you can marry up Damsons with Savoury dishes such as pork, duck & lamb & serve with cheese as chutney or a jelly.

'Damson Cheese' is a traditional English preserve made from damsons & sugar with a distinctive flavour & a texture similar to cheese.

One of its most famous uses is when it is used to produce damson wine or steeped in gin to produce..............you guessed it ,damson gin.

Victoria Plums

A quintessential English dessert plum, thought to have been cultivated in the mid 1800’s from a stray seedling in Sussex.

The fruit is a delightful egg shape has a pale green to yellow flesh with a deep crimson flush & a sweet, pale yellow flesh.
