Damson Plums (yesterday's harvest)
Damson plums I picked last night. They are ultra sweet and unbelievably juicy and the first year that the skin wasn't tart which is usually the case with the Damson. They are covered with the "sugar dots" that fruitnut mentioned. This is the best plum there is in my opinion and has to be the easiest fruit tree to grow there is. Far easier than even pears...I've never (knock on wood) had any type of fungal or bacterial issues whatsoever. This tree has received exactly one spray in early spring. PC does get after it however and in past years spraying with Triazicide has proven useless. It is an extremely vigorous grower. I'd recommend this tree to any backyard grower over any other fruit tree...it's a pretty tree too with fantastic bloom in the spring.
