Add some interest and variety to your garden with a Merryweather Damson Tree. Damsons are similar to plums, and offer a strong sour flavour. They are ideal for cooking up delicious desserts, plum pies and for making preserves and jellies. The Merryweather Damson has a rich, dark purple skin with a distinct juicy, acidic taste.
Prunus insititia 'Merryweather Damson' is ideal for beginners wanting to grow a fruit tree in a garden, as it is hardy and requires very little maintenance or specialist care. It is tolerant of most soil types and will do well in full sun. it is also tolerant of more difficult conditions and can be planted in the cooler northern regions. Its heritage stems from Nottinghamshire 1907.
Your Merryweather Damson Tree is self-fertile. This means that it will grow and offer fruit as a stand-alone tree and does not require another tree to pollinate it. The heavy crops of damsons are ready for picking in September.
We offer the Prunus insititia 'Merryweather Damson' as a St Julian rootstock. This is a semi-vigorous rootstock and can be pruned as a bush, a half standard and can be fan-trained. The tree will reach heights of 6-8m in a 10 year period.
