Opinions on Shropshire Damson plum
I have been disappointed with my Shropshire damson. I've had it since 2008 and it never seems to grow and it's not produced anything yet. It did bloom this year, but has aborted it's fruit already. It is on St. Julien rootstock.
I'm beginning to think it's like a pear tree and I may have to wait 10 years. Is this a worthwhile tree to keep for jam and such? I was thinking to replace it with a Geneva Mirabelle or an Ersinger.
What I really want is to make plum dumplings. I don't know what the Germans use for their dumplings, maybe Konrad would know. They are to die for and my mouth waters at the thought.
