Buy Damson trees from Carrob Growers

Damson trees


Damsons (Prunus Damascena) have been cultivated in England for many centuries and with their rich, astringent flavour make a versatile culinary fruit, ideal for cordials, wines and preserves.  Some varieties such as Blue Violet, Delma and Merryweather are sweet enough to eat as a dessert fruit.  Often to be found in hedgerows and field margins, damsons are an intrinsic part of our heritage.


Damsons supplied by Carrob Growers are grown on St Julien A or Pixy rootstocks.
